I plan to summit Mt. Baker this year to fulfill two goals, one is a self motivated desire to prepare for the big one in the pacific NW, and the other is to raise at least $750 to support Asha for Education who would use the funds to help children in India receive the education they need to be better citizens of the world tomorrow. The journey to the top of Mt. Baker starts with rigorous training hikes, and there are plenty of breathtaking one’s to choose from in the pacific NW. To include a few examples are Mt. Si, Mt. St. Helens, Mt. Adams etc. So far it has been fun and I am starting to build endurance for the bigger and tougher hikes before I can summit Mt. Baker. I will be doing this with other enthusiastic Asha volunteers who also enjoy the outdoors and have similar motivation to support Asha. I welcome all of you to come to Seattle and discover the natural environment with lakes, mountains, the ocean and much more. At the same time I sincerely request your kind cooperation to donate for the young boys and girls in India that Asha for Education is supporting. Please donate generously as this is in support of an honorable cause. Thank you so much.
