EVENT DATE: Aug 16, 2015
WE DID IT!!! On August 25th, Isabella and I reached Uhuru Peak, (Freedom Peak) on Mount Kilimanjaro, which, at 19,341 feet, is the highest freestanding mountain in the world. It was cold, hard, remarkably beautiful and exhilarating! Thanks for all of your good wishes and support!!!!!!
When your daughter asks you to climb Mt. Kilimanjaro to celebrate her 21st birthday, there's only one answer... YES! We've set out to raise awareness and $$$ for a cause near and dear to our hearts - My Life My Choice (http://www.fightingexploitation.org), a groundbreaking, nationally recognized survivor-led organization working to stem the tide of commercial sexual exploitation of adolescents across Massachusetts. Founded in 2002, MLMC has trained over 7,000 youth providers, led prevention groups for more than 1,750 girls and mentored over 300 girls in the Greater Boston area. In 2006, My Life My Choice was recognized by the US Dept of Justice as a national model for the prevention of sex trafficking and was honored by the Petra Foundation for their impact on children's lives. My Life My Choice is program of the Justice Resource Institute. We set out to summit Kilimanjaro on August 16, 2015. Please help us make a difference!
