THE STORY:

Rising 19,340 feet above sea level, Kilimanjaro is the tallest mountain in Africa and the world’s highest free-standing mountain. Sir Edmund Hillary climbed Everest “because it was there”. This ALEXA Expedition provides our friends and supporters with a unique opportunity to reach personal goals, cross one off their bucket list and most importantly do so while raising much needed funds and awareness for our lifesaving cause. We are only inviting 16 people to climb with us.
How Can You Join Us?



This is our first International Expedition and is being led by long time supporter Wandrian Adventures. Founded by Tom & Stacey Branchini, It Happened to Alexa Foundation honors the courage of their daughter Alexa, who survived a traumatic rape by a stranger who broke into her college dormitory the second week of her freshman year. The only one of its kind in the country, this Lewiston, NY based national foundation provides financial, emotional and advocacy assistance to victims who prosecutes their attackers. Additionally the foundation is dedicated to educational outreach to develop safe dates and personal safety at the high school and college level as well as for special needs population. It Happened to ALEXA Foundation will be celebrating 11 years of successfully supporting hundreds of victims of sexual assault and their families, aiding US citizens in 43 states and 15 foreign countries.



As a member of the ALEXA Expedition you will receive the following for raising $10,000 in the name of “It Happened to ALEXA”





• The climb, flights, food, accommodation, insurance, in country transport etc.

• Your own personal website for online fundraising and fundraising tips

• Support from both The ALEXA Foundation and Wandrian Adventures

• Full expedition support from training to what to pack

• Team ALEXA Expedition apparel



Please Don’t Wait!



If you are receiving this letter you have either been a part of the ALEXA team in some shape or capacity or have shown great interest or been recommended to The ALEXA Foundation as a potential candidate toward this year’s effort. We are excited to have 16 spots on this expedition which we are offering to you on a first-come first served basis! We would ideally like to fill these positions as soon as possible to have a strong beginning for both the training and fundraising efforts of Team ALEXA. If you have suggestions as to climbers who may have expressed interest in climbing Kilimanjaro for Team ALEXA we would greatly appreciate it if you would forward those to us as well!



So many thanks in advance for your participation and current interest in Team ALEXA and we hope you will join us for another productive and enriching event! We will be sending out frequent newsletters with fundraising ideas, group events and training tips, we hope you will find these useful! We are here to help and support the climbers of Team ALEXA so please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions or

assistance you may need!
