"It was just nice to, like, see people that I haven't seen in a long time and this movement means a lot to me and my family, so I was really glad that I could be a part of it and that my team could join me in it," said Avadney Gerard-Osbourne.

The trail is no easy feat-- 7.5 miles up the mountain. 

As they reached the top, Gerard-Osbourn said she feels the Lobos can help change this world for the better. 

"I just really want everyone to know that everyone's a part of it and everyone wants to fight for change and that our team is willing to do whatever we can to make that change," she said.
