THE STORY:

Hi-- this is Mark Pattison, former University of Washington Husky and NFL player now living in Santa Monica, CA. This June, I will flying to Africa to climb Mt Kilimanjaro which is the highest free standing mountain in the world from floor to ceiling at 19,341 feet (Everest is the tallest) and along the way get involved with a great organization called Westcoast Sports Associates (WSA), who are committed to making youth sports possible in the greater Los Angeles area.  Mt.Kilimanjaro is located in Tanzania, Africa and better known as one of the Seven Summits which are the tallest peaks on each of the 7 continents.  My goals are 1) get to the top of Kili safely 2) raise $10,000 & bring awareness to WSA 3) help kids in sports which has always been my passion.  I climbed Mt. St. Helens before it blew its top & Mt. Rainer a few years ago which is 14,555 feet with Ed Viesturs and Jim Mora but this will certainly be much higher & with thinner air..

WSA is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to giving economically disadvantaged children the opportunity to participate in sports. To achieve this goal, WSA has funded various community programs and activities for boys and girls in grade 8 and below. For many children, the opportunity to participate in sports would not be possible without WSA funding.

WSA is comprised of a diverse cross-section of individuals drawn from both the business and sports communities who volunteer their time to help run the organization.

WSA operates through funds raised by charitable donations, personal contributions, and the hosting of the annual Roy Firestone Award Dinner.
Since WSA began in 1995, WSA has funded more than $2.5 million to youth sports programs in Southern California.

For more information, please visit the WSA website at www.westcoastsports.org.  100% of your tax-deductible gift goes directly to Westcoast Sports Associates.

Tanzania is 10 hours ahead of Pacific Standard Time (PST).  Thanks for any support you can provide.  Mark
