As a medical sales consultant, I work with hospitals and hospital foundations on the purchase, installation and training of medical equipment. Before working in medical, I had no idea just how important hospital foundations were and how much capital equipment and important procedures are due to funding raised through hospital donations. I'm very excited to be on the other side of things this time and help raise donations for the BC Children's hospital to support the kids who need it the most.
I spend much of my time hiking and enjoying the outdoors, but this will be my first long distance high altitude hike. My boyfriend Patrick Whibley and I are going to be sharing this challenge and raising donations together, but neither of us are looking forward to losing control of our bodily functions, as Russ said can happen to the climbers at high altitude!
Thanks to Jason Lawson for introducing and inspiring us to join the Summits of Hope. Jason hiked Everest Base Camp with Summits in honor of his amazing son Beckett who is in remission from Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia. Thanks also to family, friends and colleagues that will be supporting us in this upcoming challenge.
Please donate in support of my climb and Summits of Hope by choosing the "Donate Now" link on this page and pick my name from the list of climbers!
Note: 100% of donations go directly to BC Children's hospital. Tax receipts are provided. Climbers are responsible for paying all costs of the climb.
