2017's adventure and fundraising

I want to thank everyone on their support for my 2016 Rickshaw run fundraising effort for the refurbishing of the orphanage in Bhaktapur, Nepal. It made a tremendous difference in the day to day of the kids lives. I have started another fund raiser for 2017 to benefit the children’s education fund. A quality education in Nepal is not free. There are fees, materials, books, and uniforms required for the children to get a quality education in Nepal.
 
So what is the adventure for this year? I am trekking to Everest Base camp in May to bring awareness and hopefully raise at least $5,000 for Kids of Kathmandu. They do amazing work in Nepal. They support an orphanage, as well as rebuild schools up in the mountains that were damaged by the devastating earthquake.  Every little bit helps!
