Why Africa?

Because I truly have always wanted to go on a big mission trip like this. I have gone on many around America with my church, but never have I been on one outside the country. This is an amazing opportunity to be able to help these children and this community.

Why I want to climb

Because this is a once in a lifetime experience and I know that there is much to gain from a fundraiser like this.

Biggest Concern

Not being able to complete the climb due to altitude problems or some other restriction.

Fun Fact

I was two and a half months premature when I was born.  I weighed 2lbs!
