Last year I climbed to the highest point in the contintental US at the summit of Mt. Whitney. 14,508 ft!
With your help I raised $1670 for St. Judes.
After it was over I was kind of unhappy that I hadn't shot a little higher (fundraising wise). So this year I'm going back up the hill with a goal of raising $10,000.
But this year there is more to it. In the off season, I injured my knee and was on crutches and using a cane just a few weeks ago. The truth is this time it's going to hurt more and it probably will be my last backpacking trip. I'm just getting to be old.
Last year I wanted to quit more than once, but the truth is that the knowledge that so many had donated kept me moving upward.
I can't do it without your help and motivation!
