My Fundraising Goal: 19,341 USD
Total Raised To Date: 25,247 USD
Exceeded my goal by: 5,906 USD

This adventure started a few months ago with my good friend Justin meeting me for dinner and telling me "I want to ask you to do something with me, and you cannot say no".

I have to admit, I did at first say no. I never thought I wanted to climb Mount Kilimanjaro. In fact the thought had never crossed my mind. When would I train? And how could I take the time away from my family and work for an almost two week trek?

When I thought more about this tremendous opportunity, however, I became excited. Not only would I get to attempt this incredible challenge, but I could do so in support of Shalva, a wonderful organization providing critical services to children and adults with disabilities, and their families.

Shalva is dedicated to providing transformative care for individuals with disabilities, empowering their families and promoting social inclusion. Shalva's non denominational programs are provided free of charge, and in partnership with communities, governments, academic institutions and cultural organizations worldwide.

I have seen firsthand the positive impact Shalva has had on the lives of friends of ours whose families have been affected by various disabilities, and know how important Shalva's work is in their lives. I also know from various children in our community who have volunteered with Shalva how meaningful its programs are not just to those who benefit from their services, but for those to help to provide them.

I am proud to be able to take this challenge in support of Shalva, and hope you will participate as well. Every donation is meaningful, and will ensure that Shalva can continue to serve its client families. Please consider making a donation in support of my climb.

Thank you for your support!
