September 19th, 2017, I will set out on a 3-day climbing expedition to summit Mt. Rainier's 14,410 ft of glacier covered mountainous terrain. It is my hope that you will join along side and support my trek by making a donation to a charity that is making a big impact in our world. The Leukemia Research Foundation. Founded in 1946, the Leukemia Research Foundation (LRF) is dedicated to conquering all blood cancers by funding research into their causes and cures and enriching the life of those touched by these diseases. The LRF has more than 1,500 volunteers organized in 24 fundraising chapters. LRF provides patients with educational resources, emotional support, and financial assistance. The LRF has relentlessly dedicated itself to finding a cure raising more than $70 million in support of its mission. As a father, I am thankful for everyday that I have with an amazing and healthy son. I can't imagine what it is like for the parents of children with leukemia. It is my belief that we all have the power to transform ourselves and ultimately transform the world. It is with great honor that I will summit Mt. Rainier in hopes to raise money for this amazing charity, bringing us one step closer to rid the world of Leukemia.
