I am so excited to be participating in a hike up the famous Inca Trail to Machu Picchu! I’ll be one in a team of 10 people that is not only interested in climbing this famous trail, but are also looking to do our part in helping the Climb for Conservation. This will simply be one of the greatest adventures of my life, and I look forward to raising funds that will go towards programs which have been created to save endangered species. Our group will be specifically raising funds to save the Andean Spectacled Bear - this bear is the only surviving bear species native to South America and is in a vulnerable state due to habitat loss.

The climb will take place June 4th to 11th of this year. With Peruvian guides we will spend 4 days hiking and 3 nights camping – a true expedition that I simply cannot wait to be a part of.
Stay tuned for updates! We'll also be creating a special Facebook page so that you can track my progress, become knowledgable about the trek, and learn a bit more about the animals we'll be working to save.
Any way that you can help is tremendously appreciated. Thank you so very much for your consideration and generosity in aiding #KensClimbForConservation.
