CEO / Founder, March to the Top Foundation
Founded in 2006, March to the Top (M2T) was established as a foundation to help the less fortunate in Africa. I sought and successfully solicited donations in an endeavor to raise funds by climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro. At 19,340 ft., “Kili” is the tallest mountain on the continent. This adventure proved to reveal the wonderful spirit of Africa and helped to raise awareness for the needs of the people and landscapes which make it spectacular.
My goal in founding March to the Top was to investigate and fund projects where our donors (and myself) could have a direct impact on the individuals and communities in need without the setbacks of corruption or administrative overhead. Beyond financial support, my goal was and continues to be to provide an on-going working partnership with the people and communities our foundation supports, so that both parties would benefit from the rewards that come with forming friendships and starting dialogues between diverse peoples.
