Climb 4 SHALVA

My Fundraising Goal: 10,000 USD
Total Raised To Date: 11,039 USD
Exceeded my goal by: 1,039 USD

As I climb in the dark and cold to the final 19,400 foot summit of Mount Kilimanjaro, I will focus on my family's many blessings and will place myself in the shoes of the families that Shalva serves. I wonder, what would my life be like if I had a child with disabilities? The more I learn about Shalva and their extensive programs, the more I want to link my own short-term personal challenge with the life-long challenges that Shalva families face. I look forward to a successful climb and I thank you for your support!!
