The prizes are all pretty amazing, and I would like to thank every company that was able to make a donation to the fundraiser. Without them I don’t think I’d be able to raise the necessary funds to complete the climb!
As of today, I have raised $4,434 for the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation. As you may be aware, I need to raise at least $5,500 by the time I start my climb! If you haven’t already donated, please visit the donation page to make your donation online, or if you prefer to send a personal check, contact me and I’ll provide you the mailing address! If you own a business and would like to sponsor the climb or add a product/offer to the fundraising raffle, let me know as soon as possible so I can add you to the marketing material!
Most of my training exercises will take place later in the week as I’ll be preparing for the fundraising event on Thursday. This past week I spent most of my free time preparing for the fundraising event. I was able to sneak in a few cardio runs and some altitude breathing exercises.

Wednesday: 5.5K run (32 mins)
Friday: Altitude mask breathing 9K ft with basic leg exercises (15mins)

Hope to see you on Thursday!
