Everest Base Camp Trek: Timmerman Climb to Fight team prepares in Kathmandu

Namaste everyone,

I’m incredibly proud to be launching our 2022 Spring Nepal season with this amazing team of people.
Our team of Biotech industry professionals has been preparing and fundraising now for over 2 years.
We are ecstatic to have all made it to Nepal! We have prepped our gear and tomorrow morning we will fly into Lukla to begin our trek to Everest Base Camp.
This team has so many layers. They have worked incredibly hard to raise 1.3 million USD for Fred Hutch Cancer Research Center in Seattle. Here we go!
Stay tuned for lots from us as we make our way on this intrepid journey. A Huge thank you to all of our supporters and followers out there. We could not do this without you.
