Make-a-Wish Michigan is an organization that is close to my heart. The Make-A-Wish mission is to grant the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions. October 15-November 17 I'll be climbing Ama Dablam in Nepal in support of wish kids who have a mountain of their own to climb. I'm going to raise a minimum of $1 for every 1 foot I climb. My goal is $35,000. You can follow me in this climb on facebook, twitter and here on my blog.

Leaving for Ouray
This week I leave for Ouray, CO to do a little climbing, my "skills" challenge. If all goes well, in February I'll be booking my trip to Nepal. I'll be climbing this week and next with guide Tim Brown through Peak Mountain Guides. Tim and I met climbing the Grand Teton a couple of years ago and have spent several days in the mountains together. He's safe, knowledgeable and a good teacher. Having achieved the highest level of certification in each of the three American Mountain Guides Association (AMGA) disciplines (Rock, Alpine and Ski Mountaineering), he is a fully licensed International Federation of Mountain Guide Associations (IFMGA) guide.
