Help me raise money for
BC Children Hospital



About Me

I enjoy climbing as it is one of the best ways of knowing you are alive. Summits of Hope has given me an excellent opportunity to support the hospital charity while traveling and experiencing the world. Pushing yourself through physical hardship is nothing compared to what the children at BC Childrens Hospital and their families face on a daily basis. My family is the most important part of my life. It is incredible watching little people grow up and starting out on their own adventures. Setting out on a new journey and not knowing the outcome keeps me coming back for more. I know the mountain will never be given to me, its a guaranteed challenge. Live your life, if you can help people along the way you will be better for it.
