Everest 2021 Expedition Cost

Leo Namen started climbing mountains many years ago and has since summited many peaks, often raising money for important causes with his climbs. In March, 2018, Leo summited Pico de Orizaba, the highest peak in Mexico, and used the climb as a fundraiser for orphans in the city of Orizaba. During the climb, he experienced some chest pain—a foreshadowing of what was to come. In April 12 2018 Leo was rushed to the hospital because of a heart attack. He survived and began his physical recovery, but soon discovered that heart attacks also take an emotional and mental toll. Determined to overcome the setback of his heart attack, on his 50th birthday Leo will attempt to summit the world’s highest peak, Mount Everest, as a fundraiser for Heart & Stroke; taking his heart to the highest! In April 2021 Leo will head to Nepal for the greatest challenge of his life!  On his 51t birthday, Leo is going to attempt to summit Mt Everest while raising money for the Heart & Stroke Foundation. When successful he will be the first Canadian Heart Attack survivor to complete this feat! For over 60 years, Heart & Stroke has been one of Canada’s most trusted brands known for its commitment to promote health, save lives and enhance recovery. We invest in life-saving research while empowering and supporting Canadians to take control of their health. Leo Namen is about to embark on a once in a life time opportunity. And with your help we’re looking to bring the Heart to the Highest in 2021 and to donate to 2 different studies at the University of Alberta.
