It's been almost a month since returned from his successful Everest climb and he's been busy talking to media, appearing for sponsors and reuniting with friends and family. “It's been an extremely busy last few weeks,” said Rob. “But it's been worth it. We've been appearing in a lot of media articles and shows which has helped the 7Summits awareness campaign greatly. We've got a lot of work to do and we need help to get it done.

Everest Fund raising continues

Everest Fund raising continues

That's why I've been trying to talk to as many people as possible and ask them to help us reach our fund raising goal of one dollar per foot of Everest elevation. We're trying to raise $29,035 for a new inflammatory bowel disease research facility at the Okanagan campus of the University of British Columbia. I'm happy to report that we're getting closer to our goal and we've raised over $19,000 to date.”

We need your help to achieve Rob's fund raising goal.  Please donate online to IDEAS now, or if you'd prefer, send a cheque to the IDEAS office:

#521 – 119 West Pender Street
Vancouver, BC, V6B 1S5

All donations over $20 will receive a Canadian tax receipt for charitable giving. For more information on IDEAS and its programs, please click here.
