"The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago. The second best time is now." (Chinese Proverb). For myself the best time to climb with my friends for such a worthy cause as BC Children's would have been 16 years ago, but preparing for my first one today is the best I can do and I am ecstatic to begin my journey with Summits Of Hope.
Someone once said: "Life isn't about getting and having, it's about giving and being." And along those lines "life is about making an impact, not an income." I strongly believe that nothing on this earth is more important than helping out your fellow man. If I can do my part, however small it may be, and positively impact the lives of others I can think of no other more satisfying thing.
I am grateful for the chance to see the world and while doing so help to support the kids at BC Children's Hospital, and I owe this all to my good friends who paved the way some 16 years ago when they created Summits Of Hope.
""I've missed more than 9,000 shots in my career. I've lost almost 300 games. 26 times I've been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I've failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed.""
