9 06 2008

Quick update.

It’s official.

As part of the Climb Up so Kids can Grow Up Summer Summit Challenge, I’m climbing Mr. Rainier over the 4th of July weekend.

Now seeking sponsors. Spare change, dolla dolla bills, gold fillings, personal checks, anything helps. As little or as much as you can afford. It’s all tax-deductible. Contact me for more info.

Donations go to the American Foundation for Children with AIDS. Their work delivers “cost-effective relief, services, medical and social support, education and advocacy” to help HIV positive children in Africa.

Thanks in advance for your encouragement and sponsorship!





Climb Up Summer Summit Challenge

3 06 2008

Climb Up!Climb Up so Kids can Grow Up is a dynamic partnership between outdoor recreation enthusiasts and the American Foundation for Children with AIDS, which focuses on theĀ African HIV/AIDS pandemic.

Climb Up is kicking off their 2008 fundraising with an impressive Summer Summit Challenge. The idea is for hikers and climbers across America to storm the nation’s highest peaks between June 27 and July 6.

To participate, individuals must raise $115 and teams $5,000.

As of right now only one team has signed up, so please check out the high point in your state to see if you’re ready for the challenge.

If you poke around on the Climb Up website, you’ll find great stories from previous events. Read up on the fun you can have participating in programs like this. Get motivated. And realize there’s really nothing stopping you from climbing for a cause.
