So I'm actually going to go out and do it. I will be going on a humanitarian trip this summer with Mountain Medics International. MMI runs volunteer medical, dental, and optical clinics to diagnose and treat ailments of patients in remote, developing areas that suffer from extreme poverty and lack basic nourishment and hygiene. I will be spending the spring/summer hiking mountains and continuing to run my guts out to get into shape to survive the altitudes of the Peruvian Andes. I will be hiking 4-7 hours per day in Peru to get to remote villages to help improve the health and quality of life of these mountain communities that provide a home to some of our world's poorest and underserved populations. I will be helping these Dr.'s and Dentists that work in these clinics. Please consider donating to my trip. These donations will go towards medical supplies for these clinics. Mountain Medics International is an IRS-registered nonprofit organization and provides receipts to evidence your tax-deductible monetary gifts. Thanks so much for your support.
