I’m going to Mt Everest Base Camp! #HikeforHope

Things have been a whirlwind over the last 4 months and I haven’t had a chance to share with you some pretty incredible news! I travel for a living. I travel to tell stories of people and places. I travel to inspire and to be an example to my children. I want to encourage people to step out of their comfort zone, to travel off the beaten path, to try new experiences-all while giving back to others. I live and breathe this.

Last year my travels took me as far away as Africa and Greece. Those were life changing trips. This year has been slower with the exception of a few small domestic trips as I took a few months off for surgery and have been unable to go very far. HOWEVER, it’s time for a new journey. A greater one. One that has the potential, over time, to help hundreds of lives.

In April of 2018, I will be trekking to Mt. Everest Base Camp with the Huma Charity Challenge to raise funds for a wonderful organization called Cancer for College (www.cancerforcollege.org).  

They provide hope to cancer survivors who have been affected physically, emotionally and financially by cancer treatment by granting college scholarships.

That’s right my friends! I am going to hike to MT EVEREST BASE CAMP. It still doesn’t seem real to me. Over the next seven months, I will share my journey through personal videos, photos, blog posts, and via social media. I want those who follow along to feel like they are part of something special – in turn encouraging them to travel, to step out of their box, and to face their greatest fears. If children and young adults can survive cancer only to face financial challenges preventing them from furthering their education, then I can face my own challenge to help send them to college.  I hope you will follow my journey as we work together to make the world a better place.

This is by far the biggest challenge I’ve ever gone through…both physically and mentally. There’s lots of preparation and I hope you follow my journey.

My current goal is to raise $10,000. ALL donations will go directly to Cancer for College. Any amount is appreciated!!!!!

Can you help me send a deserving child to college?!?!
