THE STORY:

Donate Here

Another year, another Cerini Challenge. As a board member of the Lymphatic Education & Research Network (LE&RN), I will once again be directing my efforts to raising money for LE&RN. LE&RN is an awesome organization focused on the study of the lymphatic system in an effort to find a cure for lymphatic related disorders, including lymphedema, a condition that impacts more than 5 million people. Scientists believe that such disorders as obesity, autoimmune diseases, cancer, diabetes, heart issues, and more, are all linked to the lymphatic system. If we can unlock the mysteries of the lymphatic system, we may be able to better understand and combat many of the leading causes of death.

This is an extremely worthy organization… so I need to pick challenges that will mirror the significance of LE&RN. After all, I am expecting everyone to give big, so I need to go big!

In June, I will be spending a week in New Mexico climbing some big walls. We will be doing climbs in the Sandias such as the Knife’s Edge on Shield (1,000 foot vertical climb), NW Ridge of the Thumb (1,500 feet of vertical climbing), the SW Ridge of the Needle (11 pitches of 5.8 climbing), Bush Shark Spire/Westron Wynde (2 short but stout climbs), and more. In addition, we will climbing Mt Sneffels in the San Juans in Southern Colorado, where we will be taking the Snake Col, a 55 degree show climb to the summit of the 14,250 foot mountain.

In July, it’s off to the Canadian Rockies where I will spend 10 days climbing such mountains as Assiniboine (also known as the Canadian Matterhorn, I’ve been weathered off this twice before), Mt. Sir Donald, Mt Castle, Mt Faye, Mt Temple, Mt Louis, and I am sure I’ll try a few more Mt’s while I’m there. We picked endeavors that are all between 10 and 13 hours a day (I believe in penance in exchange for your contributions).

In August, I will be back in Colorado for some rock climbing and 14,000 foot peak bagging.

Clearly, I am giving it my all, and I am looking for you to do the same. Please contribute to the 2017 Cerini Challenge and help me in my efforts to raise $10,000 for LE&RN.
