Today was s beautiful day here in Bishop! I was able to get away for a sweet little hike.  It felt great to get out… Put some weight on my back… And get my heart rate up again without  feeling like I was going to die !!!

9 days to go before ” leaving on a jet plane” …:)




You have helped spread my wings…..

I continue to be humbled by the amount of support I’m getting for this amazing project  we are all involved in.

Thanks to each and everyone of you for this!  Together we will make a difference!

Please help me help someone else…..

Imagine up to 200 paraglider pilots hiking up Kilimanjaro at the same time with the same purpose…..

Wings of Kilimanjaro” is a once in a life time chance to climb and fly off the highest free standing mountain on the planet and in doing so we will raise over a million dollars for two special charities chosen by the group of dedicated pilots that worked so hard to make this happen.

The two charities chosen “PLANT WITH A PURPOSE” and “ONE DIFFERENCE” have been chosen because the Tanzanian government has specifically requested that funds raised by this event be spent on three key areas of need: Health, Environment and Education while focusing on the Kilimanjaro region.  These two will help raise awareness and help change the situation in Tanzania with deforestation and poverty as well as the bleak water situation.  They will do so by using funds to help start family and community gardens and re- planting trees as well as educating local people in the Kilimanjaro region of the importance of sustainable and community led water and sanitations systems.

My goal is to raise over $10, 000 which I will need in order to take part in this.  A minimum of $5,000 in money raised for the charities is required and $5,000 that I will need to get there (plane fare, porter fees, guides etc).   Any thing over my goal will go 100% to the charities and if for some reason I do not end up going ALL the money I’ve raised will go directly to the two Charities chosen for this event!!!

I’ve decided to take part in this because I love to fly, I love to hike and I love giving back in any way that I can.  I am proud to be part of this group of dedicated pilots working together to make a difference. I believe every little bit helps make this world a better place.  I’ve been so fortunate in my life because of flying.  Thank you so much for taking the time to read this and consider helping me to reach my goal by donating here:
