BlackBerry fan goes the extra mile for BB10

A winning entry in CrackBerry's What Would You Do for a BlackBerry 10 Phone? Contest!

And we're back with another winning entry in CrackBerry's What Would You Do for a BlackBerry 10 Phone? Contest. When readers were submitting their entries earlier in January, we knew February -- Mobile Nations Fitness Month -- was just around the corner. And also knowing that we'd be locked up in CrackBerry HQ pounding out blog posts instead of reps for most of February, we really liked Heather Ho's health and fitness related idea (as pointed out in the comments, it's a great tie in to the BlackBerry Keep Moving campaign too!).

Heather's idea? To make herself a custom CrackBerry t-shirt, and take the 6 mile hike up Mission Peak, getting her fitness on while spreading the CrackBerry word. We all know the Bay area favors iOS and Android devices, so what better place to do a little BlackBerry infiltration.

Talking about her inspiration for the idea, Heather told us:

I was thinking of something unique that other people may not do across the nation. With the sunny weather in California, I took advantage of the nature here. Hiking is a big craze here especially among the younger adults. It was something I could do but at the same time it was a challenge. Mission peak is a 6 mile hike (3-4hrs long) and the elevation at the peak is approximately ~2200 ft. above from the starting point of the trail. 

Heather rocked the hike despite getting that jelly leg feeling (I know that one!). And for us in CrackBerry HQ, looking out the window at the snow, we just wish we could have been there with her to join her outdoors. Great job Heather! You'll be getting your BlackBerry Z10 soon!

BlackBerry fan goes the extra mile for BB10


Wait, 3-4 hours hike? My cousins did that in an hour at normal pace. Not sure how she's getting the 3-4 hours hike. Next!

And BB's advertisement campaign is "Keep Moving", so good work on the moving part Heather! Congrats.

~I am BlackBerry by choice~

Congrats Heather!!!
Getting exercise, enjoying the NICE scenery, advertising and BlackBerry, AND winning a BlackBerry 10 Z10? This is what I call an all around WIN!!!!!

Semper Fi

I would like to run up that!

Really eating an apple at the top Blackberries would have been better


I approve this video and the Tattoo one. They both show the whole process of what they did and documentary it.

The 1000 crane didn't show the process of how he was doing any folding at all.
The model video well, was just a regular day of photoshooting.

I live near Mission Peak but have never been there. Go Heather! It's nice to see another BlackBerry users in Silicon Valley!

Awesome job Heather!! Congratulations and great way to show your Crackberry and Blackberry support!!

good job, keep it up and you'll get better. I cant wait for summer here in vancouver. I wanna climb some mountains!!

Ok maybe I'm just jealous I didn't get picked, but come on, a hike she wouldve done anyways, just wearing a crackberry tshirt? I was gonna jump out of a hottub into a snowdrift for 10 "blackberry" seconds.

Man,excuse me, I'm gonna go and stomp my feet and mope :(

Your idea wouldn't go over very well if you won either. After a few beer, anyone would do that "just because"...

I was cheering you on until you whipped APPLE Heather? Really? It should have been some Blackberries girl!!! LOL!

All kidding aside, great job Heather! Lucky girl to be getting a free BB10.


Congratulations on the hike while spreading the word of Blackberry ;) and the subsequent win of a Z10 !!
