Yesterday I met Johnny Davison for the first time. He came into Domain Lodge, the home of the Cancer Society in Auckland, and gave us a cheque for $3,500 raised from his recent Everest climb. What an amazing effort!
Many people climb mountains and they do it a variety of reasons. Many people support charities and again they do this for a whole host of motives. In Johnny’s case, it’s because his own family has been touched by cancer & he wanted to make a difference. Johnny’s story is one of courage & generosity. Working for the Cancer Society teaches you that life is short & you should take nothing for granted. Enjoy it but don’t be afraid to take a few risks along the way just as Johnny did when he made it to the top of the world.
Thanks to all those who supported ‘Johnny’s big climb.’ For most people getting through cancer is their own personal Everest. With your help the Cancer Society can make a difference in their lives.
