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.

With 16 weeks remaining before departure, we still have $5,000 to go to reach our goal of $30,000 for the Make-A-Wish Foundation. That $5,000 will be enough to grant one more Wish. A wish that may change the future for a child and their family.
The Make-A-Wish mission : We grant the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength and joy.
My training in recent weeks has centered around aerobic conditioning: longer bike rides and pack weighted hikes. Some of that has been combined with running and swimming. In addition, I continue twice a week at either a Crossfit Box or D1 Detroit 'boot camp' style workout.
I still feel confident my summit chances are good, if we can get on the mountain. Many things need to fall in place for that to happen, but I'm on track.
