Kilimanjaro to Kill Cancer

All of us have been affected by cancer in one way or another. Both Vicki and I lost our fathers to cancer. I know so many of our friends and family have battled this awful disease. We all want to see it end.

As many of you know, since moving to Arizona in 2015 my passion for hiking has increased dramatically.

On Sept. 28, I will be taking on my toughest challenge yet by attempting to reach to the summit of Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania, Africa. One of the 7 summits, Kilimanjaro stands at 19,341 feet above sea level.

Please pledge an amount for every foot of elevation I am planning to climb. One penny would be$193 donation. Two cents, $386 and so on. Every $ raised in this will be donated to American Cancer Society.  In addtion, Cisco Systems, will match $4$ every donation. Any amount is appreciated.
