An article was written about me in the North Shore News about my trip to Nepal last year and my desire to help out a Sherpa friend, Pemba Sherpa (nickname Pega).
Pega is 22 years old and works as an assistant Sherpa guide but what he really wants is to become a full mountain guide. I'd love to be able to help him do that and have set up a gofundme account in his name. Any donation can help - if you have $5 or $10 to spare, I'd be thrilled.
He's already climbed Mount Everest and Cho Oyu but is lacking some of the training he needs. By bringing him to Canada, he'll be able to get the courses he needs to continue his dreams in Nepal.
In just 10 days, Pega is once again off to climb Mount Everest. I'll be speaking with him at every opportunity on his trek in and his climb then blogging about his journey. Hope you can follow along.
