As a friend of the Himalayas, I want to let you know about a very special and
worthwhile event dedicated to making small miracles happen: the American
Himalayan Foundation’s Annual Dinner, Oct 26, 2011.
To Everest! In attendance will be an impressive summit party (in both senses!)
with 40+ ascents among them – from the first Americans on Everest, Jim
Whittaker and Tom Hornbein, to Ed Viesturs, Jon Krakauer, Conrad Anker, Jimmy
Chin, Pete Athans and world record holder Apa Sherpa.
Also in attendance will be a summiteer of a different kind: Dr. Ashok Banskota,
Director of the Hospital and Rehab center for Disabled Children in Kathmandu,
whose team works miracles for young lives every day, mending the broken limbs
and bodies of Nepal’s poorest disabled children.
It will be a very entertaining evening, full of tall tales – and perhaps some
poignant ones —and a few surprises. Doing good, being kind, having fun. Please
email or call our friend Norbu Tenzing at Norbu@himalayan-foundation.org or
