Summit Kilimanjaro for SOWF

On 7 October 2012, I will be starting on an expedition to the top of Mount Kilimanjaro in support of the Special Operations Warrior Foundation (SOWF).  Rather than following the conventional method of using porters to assist in carrying the gear, I will be carrying my own gear.  My goal is to reach the summit in 5 days, rather than the typical 7.  Needless to say this will be a unique challenge as I aim to rapidly ascend the 19,371 ft volcano, with a heavy ruck, limited sleep, and of lack of time to properly acclimate to the altitude.   I appreciate a donation of whatever you can afford.  My pain will be the SOWF's gain.

*********************************************

About the Special Operations Warrior Foundation (SOWF): Created in 1980, SOWF is devoted to providing a college education to every child who has lost a parent serving in the Army, Navy, Air Force and Marine Corps during an operational or training mission under the U.S. Special Operations Command. This includes over 70,000 military special operations and support personnel assigned to units throughout the United States and around the world.

The Warrior Foundation is currently committed to providing scholarship grants to more than 900 children of the approximately 800 Special Operations personnel who have given their lives for their country since 1980, including those who died fighting our nation's war against terrorism as part of "Operation Enduring Freedom" in Afghanistan and the Philippines as well as "Operation Iraqi Freedom."

Since 2005, the Special Operations Warrior Foundation has provided immediate $3,000 cash grants to personnel seriously wounded in the line of duty. Once notified of a special operations soldier, airman, sailor or Marine hospitalized with a severe injury, the SOWF immediately sends funds to the service member (or his/her designated recipient) so family members can immediately travel to be at their loved one's bedside. Since this program began in 2005, the Special Operations Warrior Foundation has provided over $1.2 million to wounded special operations personnel.
