Summits for Evan's School


I wrote about my nine-year-old grandson Evan's climb of Mt. Katahdin in a recent The Right Thing column. In it, I told the story of how a hiker from Quebec helped encourage Evan.

Now Evan has decided to give back. His goal is to climb ten 4,000-foot summits in 2008 in an effort to raise money to help his public charter school go green. (I am on the board of trustees for his school.) He's set up the Summits for My School blog where he explains his project and provides people with a way to sponsor him.

He's also explained his goal in the letter to his friends and family above. If you click on the envelope under my blog entry you can forward this on to others you believe might find Evan's cause worth supporting.
