Climbing Kilimanjaro For a Cause

A group of students from DePauw University in Greencastle have their sights set on a truly lofty goal. Climb for a Cure's Kevin M. McLoughlin '10, Mitchel K. Hannum ‘10, Heidi N. Keiser '11, Andrew C. Repp '11 and Lauren E. Werckenthien '10 are trekking to Mt. Kilimanjaro's Kibo summit this month to raise money to fight pediatric brain cancer, a disease that took the life of McLoughlin's seven-year-old sister.

They hope to generate $40,000 in donations — one dollar for each foot traveled up and down the mountain — to Riley Children's Foundation in Indianapolis, the Children's Brain Tumor Foundation and b.r.a.i.n. Child, a non-profit organization in Toronto, McLoughlin's home.

There's more here.
