I'm Climbing Mount Everest - Twice!

Sort of... For my third annual fundraising challenge I pledge to:

• Climb 11 vertical miles or twice the elevation of Mount Everest

• Lose 20 pounds

• Do both of the above by July 1st – roughly 2 months

• Get a mohawk so long I raise $20k CAD – donors get to vote on the color

As many of you already know, I recently moved to Montreal. Mont Royal (above) is in my backyard and will serve as my primary training ground. To provide some context, I will need to climb the equivalent of 117 round trips to the summit of Mont Royal to meet my goal. If you are wondering how I arrived at 2x Everest, it’s because I’ve decided to fundraise for two charities in 2022; my old friends the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS), and now the Montreal Children’s Hospital (MCH). Similar to the LLS “Light The Night” campaign, MCH has “Pedal For Kids” that is a strong tradition for Morgan Stanley Montreal. You are welcome to donate to whichever charity you prefer. Both are incredibly worthy causes.

You can monitor my progress on Strava at: http://www.strava.com/athletes/66711621. I will also provide my donors with a weekly status email/blog.

Thank you in advance for your support and get ready to see some stunning sunrises from Mont Royal!
