A Look Back at 2008 and Ahead
Happy New Year!
With the holidays upon us, I wanted to send out a greeting along with an Alzheimer's update and a look back at an exciting year in climbing.
Alzheimer's Disease - Progress but More Needed
2008 was the culmination for my Memories are Everything: The Road Back to Mount Everest project. This year long journey included 5 climbs ending with another attempt on Everest - all to raise awareness and funds for Alzheimer's research. While I didn't summit Everest, we did raise over $25,000 for the Cure Alzheimer's Fund (CAF) - and that I am more proud of than an Everest summit.
