Site Update Notifications and Expedition Dispatches

This is home for site notifications and dispatches from Alan's expeditions plus updates on Memories are Everything Alzheimer's fund raising activities. Alzheimer's is a devastating disease and the true cause of the disease is unknown. Researchers are making great progress but more is needed. And there is hope.

I have partnered with the Alzheimer's Association, the leading voluntary health organization in Alzheimer care, support and research. Their mission is to eliminate Alzheimer's disease through the advancement of research; to provide and enhance care and support for all affected; and to reduce the risk of dementia through the promotion of brain health.

100% of your donations go directly to Alzheimer's issues. None go to Alan's climbing expenses. I encourage you to read more about this excellent organization and make your tax deductible donation today.

Invitation to the Everest Presentations

Memories (47)_edited-1.jpg


As I mentioned a few dispatches ago, I will be speaking in California and Colorado and hope that you can join me at one of these events. In particular, it would be great to see you at the luncheon on Tuesday, March 4.
Regular readers already know that I am returning to Mt. Everest in April 2008 for a special cause that I am very passionate about. I will be attempting the north side with a small team lead by Ryan Waters of Mountain Professionals. I have been training extensively for the past year with climbs on Denali, Shisha Pangma, Aconcagua and Orizaba. However, This is more than just about climbing mountains.

The Road Back to Mt. Everest: Memories are Everything is my year long journey to raise awareness and $100,000 for Alzheimer's research. My partner in this endeavor is the Cure Alzheimer's Fund. Please see the invitation below with all the details. Here is a summary of these events:

March 3rd 7:00PM - Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati (open to the public)

March 4rd 12 Noon - Decathlon Club, Santa Clara CA (by this invitation only)

In addition to these events, I will be presenting with Ryan Waters of Mountain Professionals on March 13th 8:00M at Neptune Mountaineering in Boulder CO. This is open to the public.

I understand that many of you do not live in California, Colorado or even the U.S. so please feel free to forward this on to someone you may know in those areas. Please RSVP to Katie Cutler.

I hope you will come along on this journey. As usual I will be posting dispatches frequently during the Everest climb. You can sign up for notification on my dispatch page.
