to everyone involved who made this new
Challenge Mountain Resale Store a reality.

Thanks to the commitment of a generous community of donors and supporters, Challenge Mountain opened its new resale store location at 1100 Boyne Avenue in Boyne City (next to McDonald’s) on June 18, 2016.  The Grand Opening celebration was a great success!  Stop in and see the new location and experience great shopping, great service and a great cause.

“We are so grateful for the support the Resale Store has received from the community and thrilled to enhance the experience for our shoppers and committed donors. The new space will increase our efficiency and allow us to display and rotate items more regularly. We strive to make the Resale Store a place shoppers want to frequent where they are guaranteed to find high quality and unique items at an affordable price,” stated Staci Payton, Resale Store Manager.

Since 1984 Challenge Mountain has built relationships that last a lifetime and fostered communities where differences are diminished, blurred and often erased. Over the years, the people in these communities have ensured Challenge Mountain continues to thrive. Today Challenge Mountain continues to enrich lives and empower individuals living with disabilities through year-round adaptive recreation. For more information about Challenge Mountain contact Executive Director, Elizabeth Gertz Looze at or call 231.582.1186.

Join Challenge Mountain in our effort to connect people with opportunities that change lives.
