Adwait Vaidya

I, Adwait am climbing to raise funds for Asha. I have been volunteering for Asha related events in Seattle over the past ten years and am gratified that I can meaningfully contribute to their mission of catalyzing socio-economic change in India through education of under privileged children. Since 1991, Asha has managed to touch the lives of thousands of children and their families, providing them with the foundation to improve their lives.

I have been an armchair and couch mountaineer for many years. I have read all the books I could find and seen all the movies that have been made about mountain climbing. Finally it’s time to put all that research to test. This summer I will try to summit Mt. Baker, a gorgeous mountain in the North Cascades in Washington state. While I train for this endeavor with a bunch of newbie folks and trained professionals who will teach me some exciting things like glacier climbing, and axe arresting, I will try to couple this effort with my desire to raise funds for Asha.
