Climbing Again for SMAMarch 30, 2011 by Bill Strong
The inspiring Jadon's Hope and Jim Baker are at it again! And with them you know it's going to be something BIG. As ifclimbing the 23,000 foot Mt. Aconcagua and raising over $45,000 for GSF's "$200K For SMA" fundraising campaign wasn't impressive enough, Jim Baker will be tackling the famous Mt. Rainier in Washington in June 2011. And he won't be climbing alone this time. Jim will be joined by four other men for the challenging alpine ascent:Tucker Trotter,Justin Wood,Garrett Ochs, andBill Spillar. And they'll all be using their training and trip to fundraise for Jadon's Hope and GSF's new"$200K For SMA" fundraising program focused on funding the first large SMA pre-clinical animal model.
Jim, Tucker, Justin, Garrett, and Bill, thank you all for literally bringing the SMA fight to new heights once again! We're honored to be part of your journey, we're inspired by your selflessness and dedication to helping end SMA, and we're humbled by your continued support of GSF and our programs.
