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.
