John Alex Memorial Fund

Many know Alex John as the guide and voice for Kilimanjaro.  If you’ve had the incredible opportunity to spend time with him on the mountain, you will know how much he adores and loves his wife.  Despite the treacherous treks up and down Killi, Alex has made it his life mission to build a dream home for his wife, Sarah John.  He accomplished it! 

Unfortunately, Sarah died unexpectedly on July 27, 2020.

Sarah leaves behind three beautiful children and her soul mate, Alex. 

Due to COVID-19 shutdowns, Alex has been unable to work as a guide.  This fundraising effort is raise money to assist with the memorial and funeral service, and assist Alex and his family during this financial predicament.  For a man that has done and continues to do so much for humanity, this time more than ever, he will need all of us to usher him up this mountain of grief.  Join us in this moment.
