MtEverest

Every November for over 10 years, Planet Granite has hosted an exciting HelpHopeLive benefit (in honor of Stacey Collver) called the Mt. Everest Climb-a-thon.

The 2015 Mt. Everest Climb-a-thon is coming up on Sunday, Nov. 1, 2015, from 12:30-4:30 pm.

After obtaining sponsors climbers arrive at the event at PG Sunnyvale on Nov. 1, determined to climb as many vertical feet as possible in three hours. Afterwards, all the scores will be added together to see if everyone can climb 29,035 feet, the height of Mt. Everest! Those who raise over $100 will receive a T-shirt.

To participate, you can either climb on-site this day, or make a donation and be a “virtual climber.” (Each dollar donated=one vertical foot.) You can also support a friend by sponsoring their climbing. The suggested donation is $25, but additional funds are very much appreciated. The funds are used to offset Stacey’s medical expenses, which are over $1,000/month. Donations are tax-deductible, and some employers will even match your charitable donation.
