We are always so thankful when people donate, fundraise and volunteer to help us accomplish our mission. There have been so many special, and creative fundraisers over the past 15 years. That being said, this has got to be one of the most unique we have ever had the pleasure of calling our own!
On September 15th 2016, Edward Jensen and his oldest daughter Alex will be embarking on a 9 day adventure to reach the summit of Mt. Kilamanjaro in Africa, the tallest free standing mountain in the world. The goal is to raise $10,000 for the ALS Hope Foundation. Edward has been involved in organizations and groups seeking to develop a potential therapy for ALS for a number of years. By undertaking this trek they hope to raise funds for further research and, ultimately, discovery.
He is requesting support and sponsorship. Edward would like everyone to know that he is self-funding the cost of the trip and all proceeds will go directly to the ALS Hope Foundation.
