Hi, my name is Chris Dare and I'm working my way towards 2 month expedition to the summit of Mount Everest this spring 2019.
In doing so, it will be the end of a 9 year dream that only 22 Canadians and 416 worldwide have achieved, the 7 summits. The 7 summits is a mountaineering challenge to reach the peak of the highest mountains on each of the 7 continents. To date, I have completed 6 of the 7 with Everest being the final peak.
It is my pleasure to be able to help raise funds for the BC Children's Hospital with Summits of Hope. I hope that you might consider joining me by supporting their amazing work.
“And if some day, my sons ask, "Dad, why did you choose to climb?" Smiling, I'll reply, I climbed so you could fly.” "

I'm very excited this is my first climb with Summits of Hope!
