Watch us at the top of Elbrus!

It is unbelievable that just 2 weeks ago we were standing on the top of Europe (5642m) on Mt. Elbrus! Time flies. I wanted to share some moments from the summit with all of you. Again it was an absolutely amazing experience I will treasure for a lifetime. My work is not done though, the women of the Congo and Uganda still need a tremendous amount of support and we are still trying to reach our fundraising goal of $282,100. Again all proceeds go directly to International Medical Corps. I have sponsorship packages available for download on the Climb Take Action Site. You can also make an online donation at http://www.climbtakeaction.com/ . It is super easy to do and every little bit counts and will make a great impact in the life of a fellow woman or child.

I am back on the training wagon again. . . I gave myself a week off and got caught up on some comfort food. I must say I will not be eating soup for a VERY long time. I must have had 25+ bowls of soup on the trip! Pizza was what I was craving the most along with some Chinese food and Cuban food. Yummy! Now back to work and prepping for my next summit! Mt. Kosciuszko (2228m) here I come this December. . . then off to Kilimanjaro (5895 m) Summer 2009. Stay tuned for more news on Kilimanjaro and we are trying to organize a Climb Take Action Team trek! If anyone reading this would like to join us in our climbing efforts. . . the more the merrier and we would love to have you. Please contact me for more details.

We also have some great events coming up in LA area and hope you will join us!
