Everest to End Duchenne 2017
Great progress has been made, but there is still no cure for Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. A team of champions is again trekking to Everest Base Camp in September 2017. All funds raised will go directly to medical research. Please climb with us!+ Read More
It's morning at Gokya Lake, the highest fresh water lake at 15,500 ft. If you have been followibg our trek you know we reached Everest Base Camp and read the names of over 600 children and young adults into the wind. This is not easy, but we move, one step at a time. If you are on facebook, please join us in the Everest to End Duchenne group. Including donations made directly to Hope for Gus my campaign has almost reached its goal. All funds go to medical research to find a cure. Every $ helps. Thank you all.
Good morning from Namche Bazar. I hope you're all following along in the Facebook Group Everest to End Duchenne. We're heading uphill today toward 12,500 feet. And including some offline donations you have helped me get to over $4,600 toward my $5,000 fundraising goal. All this money is going to research to find a cure to save our wonderful Duchenne kids. I'd love to stand at Everest Base Camp again knowing we've passed our goal.
Tonight we are in Namche Bazar, above 11,000 feet. Our bodies are tired, but our spirits are strong. If you are not already, please follow us in the Facebook group Everest to End Duchenne. And please share this with friends and family. Namaste.
I'm in New Delhi, India, about half way to Kathmandu. Tomorrow I'll start the 30 hour journey to from here to Kathmandu: train & buses. So far we have raised over $4,000 (some donations were made outside GoFundMe and don't show on that page) of the $5,000 I set as a goal. I'm paying my own expenses, so all funds raised go to Hope for Gus Foundation to be used for medical research. I'm feeling blessed by the support of family, friends, and especially Duchenne families. Together we'll beat this thing. Namaste.
