Michael, Scott N., Erica, Sarah, Eric O, Scott G, John, Ben, TJ, Chris, Eric E, and Nez all made it to the summit of Kilimanjaro. What a great accomplishment! What a great feeling, I am sure, to reach the Roof of Africa! But, better yet, was the knowledge that so many children were affected by the generosity of these folks, along with the generosity of their supporters.
Through contributions large and small, this incredible team of individuals raised over $130,000! And, Beth (also Nike) went to Mombasa, Kenya to volunteer at one of the programs we support, raising over $12,000, as well!

On behalf of all the kids who benefited from your generosity,
