Climbing the World to End Alzheimer's
Jun 302019

Those who have followed me over the years know that I promote direct donations to research-oriented Alzheimer’s non-profits or supporting clinical trails during my climbs. This has resulted in hundreds of thousands of dollars in direct donations, none ever to me.

For this Bolivian expedition, I want to offer to speak at any event in any mainland US city as long as the organizers (individual, group, organization, company, etc.) will guarantee that a minimum of $5,000 will be donated directly to a research-oriented Alzheimer’s non-profit.

Simply add your “Event Bid” at this page and the highest over $5,000 will win! I’ll update the bids on my blog throughout July and announce the winner on August 1, 2019.

Of course, as always, direct donations in any amount are appreciated. Read more about why this cause is so important at this link and how Alzheimer’s took Ida Arnette’s life.

    I can’t organize this- but I will donate to whoever does the fundraiser.
