A Trek in the Himalayas for Cancer Research

The biotech community can do extraordinary things when fixated on a goal.

Like curing cancer.

I’m excited to announce today that I’m taking a team of biotech leaders on a mission to raise $1 million for cancer research at Fred Hutch.

This group will come together on a trek to Everest Base Camp. It’s a legendary hike in the Himalayas of Nepal, up to 17,500 feet of elevation. We will be giving back to science, forming meaningful relationships, getting to know the local Sherpa communities, and appreciating the natural wonder of the highest mountain range in the world.

The trip is scheduled for Mar. 23-Apr. 8, 2022.

Each person is committed to raising at least $50,000 for cancer research.

Here’s who is on the team:

This trip will be guided by Eric Murphy of Alpine Ascents International. AAI has a 30-year history of guiding trips in Nepal. They were the guides I trusted on my Mt. Everest summit expedition of 2018.
