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:
