Day 3 and a game of who can get there first

John just called in to report that they have indeed reached 11,000 feet.  He said that pulling the sled was extremely tiring and laborious.  I asked if it got very dark at night and he said no AND that the sun was gleaming brilliantly off the glaciers, making the ice mushy.  Then, I lost the call.  He sounds tired, but coherent.

John and the team are 9,000 feet from their goal of reaching the 20,320 summit.  Our fund raising goal is only $2463 away from the $20,320.  Our total stand today at $17,857.97.  The question is, who will get to 20,320 first: our mountain climbers or the fund for student activities in Hamtramck Public Schools?  You can help us get there first.  Please send that check today.  Here's the information:

Make the check out to Piast Institute ("Mr. Rostek's Climb" in the memo) and mail it to:

Hamtramck Public Schools
3201 Roosevelt
Hamtramck, MI 48212
