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 Foundationís Annual Dinner, Oct 26, 2011.
To Everest! In attendance will be an impressive summit party (in both senses!)
with 40+ ascents among them Ė 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 Nepalís poorest disabled children.
It will be a very entertaining evening, full of tall tales Ė and perhaps some
poignant ones óand a few surprises. Doing good, being kind, having fun. Please
email or call our friend Norbu Tenzing at Norbu@himalayan-foundation.org or
Sport Everest Boot Expedition and mountaineering boot for high altitude
and extremely cold conditions. The Everest has conquered all 14
mountains over 8,000m and also the Seven Summits- and has now had a
makeover to ensure continued peak preformance. With a newer sung, Alpine
Fit, and even lighter
Expedition footwear for
mountaineering in conditions of extreme cold. NOTE US
