Mountains for Miracles Update - EMS Announces Sponsorship

I just learned of some exciting and encouraging news from John Serafini, Executive Director of the Mountains for Miracles project. I wanted to be able to share the good news right away with readers of the White Rhino Report.

Dear Friends of Mountains for Miracles,

On behalf of the MFM organization, I am pleased to introduce our newest team member: Eastern Mountain Sports, The Official Equipment Sponsor of the MFM Seven Summits Expedition!

EMS is a New England based retailer of premier clothing and equipment for outdoor enthusiasts- from cyclists to climbers on 8,000m peaks! Anyone who ridden a bike, run a trail, hiked a mountain, or paddled a canoe has heard of this great company and great supporter of outdoor adventure & learning.

We hope that the friends of Mountains for Miracles share in our excitement of this great partnership. We look forward to working with EMS throughout the Seven Summits Expedition.

Climbing for a Cure,

Mountains for Miracles recently held an impressive kick-off fundraising event in New York City in a very fitting venue – the venerable Explorers’ Club, headquarters for some of the world’s most storied explorers and expeditions. I was privileged to be able to attend the event. Before that evening’s presentations, I was already fully committed to this amazing project, and was very excited about doing all that I can do to help MFM reach its goal of helping to eradicate cancer in children. By the end of the evening, I was even more committed and excited.

John Serafini, Andy Murphy and the rest of the team have done an extraordinary job in putting together a business plan and vision for this project that ranks as one of the most impressive and professional undertakings I have ever been associated with. And to think that they have accomplished all of this in their “spare time” while pursuing very demanding graduate degrees at Harvard is astonishing!

This team deserves all the help, encouragement and support we can give them. At the kick-off event, John and Andy announced a special program that will allow some sponsors and donors to participate in the ascents of several of the summits. Check out this link to the Seven Summits page of the MFM Website to see a map and calendar of the peaks that will be climbed in this attempt to break a world record while raising $5 million for cancer research.
