16 Weeks To Go!

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.

Please consider helping me reach this goal.

Wish Climb Update 6.5.2015

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.

Fundraising is steady. Thank you so much to all the donors, some of whom have donated 2 and 3 times. Your generosity continues to motivate me. As of today we're over $24,000!'s-Wish-Climb.htm

Thank you to my wife Robin and her graphic design business Whitfield Design for helping with promotional pieces and constant encouragement!
