When Canadian businessman Shawn Dawson set out to climb the highest peak on each of the seven continents, he felt it would be more meaningful if his quest was part of a larger goal. Dawson and his team of climbers formed the Dream Mountains Foundation and have used their climb as an opportunity to raise money for charity.
The Dream Mountains Foundation and SOS Children’s Villages have a common goal to improve the lives and opportunities of people in need around the world. For this reason, SOS Children’s Villages is one of Dream Mountains' chosen charities.
The Dream Mountains Foundation team is preparing for their Everest Base Trek and has raised over $6,000 for SOS Children’s Villages with more to come!
Who is Climbing for SOS in the 2018 Everest Base Trek?
The upcoming climb in Nepal has pooled dozens of dedicated volunteers raising money for the seven charities. The Everest 2018 Base climb has two climbers raising funds for SOS Children’s Villages: Randy McCaughtery and Brett Starke
These two dedicated climbers have all committed to training for the climb and raising funds for SOS Children’s Villages Canada. Turning their efforts towards SOS, they are all hoping to raise $5,000 each.
Randy McCaughtery, has a strong connection with SOS Children’s Villages, after having visited an SOS Village in Tanzania. It is his hope that the funds raised will allow for more children to have the comforts of a safe home and a loving family.
