Couch to Kilimanjaro - Ayron

Organized by: Ayron Sequeira

I'm of mixed emotions asking for help on this, so here's the story. I am volunteering with a group that raises money to support the family of fallen Special Operations Forces, and provide scholarships to the primary school-aged children of active duty Special Operations Airmen, Marines, Soldiers and Sailors. A major event is the Kilimanjaro Climb for Valor in which Special Forces operators who have been wounded in battle, and Gold Star Families go on an eleven-day hike up Mount Kilimanjaro. The hike is open to civilians as well. The cost for a civilian to hike is $7,500 (roughly including airfare) and a promise to raise $10,000 for the foundation. I have asked a former NHL player to participate, and he will fund-raise and do the climb. We've also secured a former NFL player. We will be doing a public fundraising push to raise the promised donation of $30,000 - THAT IS NOT WHAT THIS IS. I want to go on the hike, and I have roughly half of the $7,500 in fees needed in my savings, and am asking friends and family to help me get the rest of the way. Your gift to me is a personal donation, and is NOT tax-deductible. The reason I'm of mixed emotions in asking for your donations because every dollar you may give to me is a dollar that does not go to the foundation, so I feel it may be somewhat selfish of me to be asking for you to help me go climb a mountain. Here on Facebook, among my very limited friends and family is the only place I will make this personal request. All of my efforts in every other area will go toward the $30,000 needed to be raised by NHLer, NFLer and me. Thanks for your time, ayron
