Everest Update: Summit Success!
Georgina successfully summited Mt. Everest today! Her team lead at Everest just called to inform us of the fantastic news! She is resting right now at Camp IV (just below the 26,000) from the 20 hour trek. He indicated she did quite well and should be making her way back to base camp over the next 24 hours.
In celebration of her success and in support of the women of Congo who inspired her journey, please consider a celebratory donation.
We are so proud of you, Georgina! For not only your accomplishment reaching the top of the world, but for the inspiration you've given each of us to reach new heights in our own lives!

One of Georgina's team leaders called this morning to let us know that Georgina is past the South Col (Camp IV) at 25,919 ft. She's doing really well and the weather looks good for her summit. Past this point in the climb is the most dangerous part of the journey. Please keep Georgina in your thoughts and prayers today!

Hey everyone! Georgina called from a satellite phone this morning! She's doing well and feels good. She's on her way up to Camp 3 tomorrow morning! One of the members of the team decided to head down to base camp. Georgina and Dawa Lama along with their sherpas will be making the next stage of the climb to Camp 3. Prayers for a safe journey!

The summit group (Georgina, Ronnie, Dawa Lama and their sherpas) has made it safely through the Icefall and to Camp 2! The weather forecast shows increased winds on their planned summit day (May 20th) so the group is planning to wait it out another day or two at Camp 2 for better conditions.
Please keep Georgina and the team in your thoughts and prayers! You can also support her efforts by making a donation on this site.
More to come! :-)
