BENEFITING: CYSTINOSIS RESEARCH FOUNDATION
EVENT DATE: Apr 25, 2012
Kathy and I are trekking to Everest Base Camp on April 25th in honor of 2 special young women.21 yr. old Katie Ahnen was born with a rare disease, Cystinosis, of which there is no cure..right now. Katie is my brave daughter. The other is wonderful swimmer I coach, Eliza Siade-Cox. Eliza is 9 and was recently diagnosed with Epilepsy. Kathy and I are celebrating our 50th birthdays by trekking to Everest base camp and raising awareness and money for these life altering diseases. 100% of your donations will go to the Cystinosis Research Foundation and to helping families affected by Epilepsy. We are hoping to raise $17500, the altitude in feet we are trekking. We will make a difference with your help. Namaste, Ruth Ann
