Sometimes, given my poor vision or lack thereof, I’m amazed at what is around the corner when I turn right or left on a sidewalk never traveled before. Such is the case when the Kilimanjaro Challenge was kick started late last year November 2015. It was only an idea then but as time unfolded the idea snow balled into reality in September 2016. Never in my wildest dream did I ever think Spencer and I would be in the media but, apparently, our Kili Challenge was of interest to some. Below are links to newspaper articles and radio programs that carried our story. If you’ve not had a chance to view them previously, check out the links below.
It was an adventure of a lifetime and Burnaby Now’s the 3rd article summed up the Kili Challenge the best.

Early Edition (radio) (follow-up story upon return from Kili):
As you were all aware , The Kili Challenge was not just a personal tribute to Lana but it was also to support two charities with a $15,000 donation target each. I’m happy to report , thanks to all of you, we were able to reach and beat each charity’s donation targets as follows:
Alzheimer Society of B.C. : 15,027
Down Syndrome Research Foundation : $16,717
For those who have not donated and are still contemplating to do so , both charity’s donation pages are still up and available via my blog, mysummitchallenge.blogspot.com , to accept your donations for your 2016 tax year.
Again..Thank You! Thank You! Thank You! ..for all your tremendous support!
