Almost 25 years later and I am making another summit attempt on Mount Rainier. The first time was for Fred Hutch and this time is for American Lung Asociation. When I signed up to climb again so many feelings rushed in and will likely be there until the day of the climb. My first summit attempt was cut short 1000ft from the top but this time I am determined to make it...not only to satisfy my own personal goal but to support people with lung disease who have to fight for every breath.
I'm climbing for a healthier future, for vital COVID-19 research and for clean air.
I have set my fundraising goal to match the height of the mountain and I will push to get there! I would appreciate any amount of donation you can give! If your company has a match program that could double your donation!
Thank you for your support!
