BENEFITING: San Antonio Area Foundation
EVENT DATE: Oct 08, 2014
This October, Bradley and I will be taking on a challenge of a lifetime in our attempt to summit the highest peak in Africa, Mt. Kilimanjaro, which climbs 19,340 feet/5895 meters above sea level. Through this personal challenge, we also hope to raise money for the Jessica Redfield Ghawi (JRG) Foundation which was created in the memory of Jessica Ghawi, an aspiring sports broadcaster in Colorado who tragically lost her life in the 2012 Aurora theater shooting. Jessica’s mother, Sandy Phillips, who is a close friend to many of us in the tourism industry, took the greatest loss and turned it into a driving force behind the JRG Foundation which funds scholarships to young and talented journalism students. It is our honor to help raise money for this organization so that Jessica’s memory and the Phillips’ sacrifices can live on in the many students that will benefit from the JRG Foundation.
Please Note: Your donations are for the JRG Foundation (through the San Antonio Area Foundation Organization) and not for our trip costs. Also, by donating through this site, you’ll automatically receive an email receipt that meets the IRS requirements for a record of your donation.
