Story Opportunity

Who's interested in an international climbing story? This summer my brother, two friends and I are going to Tanzania to climb Mt. Kilimanjaro and also to raise money for Badjao Bridge, the nonprofit Dan Johanson founded to help impoverished Filipino children out of poverty. We're paying all our own expenses, so 100% of sponsorships will go to the charity. We welcome any publicity. Thanks for spreading the word and for any support!

Thanks if you can help spread the word!
