Betsy Charles, DVM, MA: I thought, I'm going to [partake in 29029 Everesting]. I'm going to do this to honor [my late husband,] Drake. And I'm going to do it because I want to prove to myself that I can do hard things on my own...Drake and I started dating when we were in high school. He was my high school sweetheart [and] we were married for 27 years, and...even though I feel old, I'm still relatively young. And so I [had] to learn how [to] live in this new normal, be a new Betsy, and I thought what a great way to honor Drake.
