The American Foundation for Children with AIDS (AFCA) has an up-coming event that I want to challenge you to be a part of. The event is challenges is Climb Up the 50. In this event, AFCA attempts to get at least 50 climbers on the highest peak in each of their states. Depending on the state, this can be a huge undertaking (not for the faint of heart ) while for others, it may be just a short day hike. Climb Up the 50 is centered around projected dates when a team can summit Denali (highest peak in Alaska), which means climbers and hikers and summit their peak on any day between July 3rd 12th.

This events is very similar to a walk-a-thon or a marathon, where individuals or teams raise money for an organization, but AFCAs events are not tied to a specific location or medium. The cost to register for each event is $25 and then it is up to you to set and strive to achieve your fundraising goals. We have set a minimum goal of $90 for individuals, representing three months of life-saving medicine for children with AIDS. From there on, the sky is the limit! Teams have a goal of $5,000.

Donations are tax deductible and can be made online or via checks (be sure to include your name in memo line). Visit or for more information on AFCA, events, and event registration.

Donations received go directly to support children who are fighting to stay alive and achieve their goals in life. Your donations provide medicine so that they can survive and be the next generation to change the world.

Register for this event today! Together, we can make a huge difference in the lives of children!
