Cami's Everest Base Camp Trek for Avela 2018

Personal message

Next Adventure for a Cause – Mt. Everest Base Camp Trek 2018


Hello Everybody,

Yes, I am doing it again for a great cause ! Join me (life changing experience) or donate (feel good to give back) for Avela #TogethertoGive

I have decided to make a difference by creating my very own fundraising journey to Mt. Everest Base Camp in May 2018.

Everest Base Camp Trek is one of the most challenging treks in the world. Many adventures like me across the globe dream of reaching Everest Base Camp (EBC) ever since Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay Sherpa reached the summit of Mount Everest in 1953. I was lucky this year and made it to EBC with 27 other amazing trekkers. 

The trek to Mount Everest Base Camp will be mentally and physically challenging, but with your support I know I can achieve this monumental goal. Click ‘Donate Now’ to make a secure online donation, and help me in my mission to change not only my life, but the lives of thousands of children from South Africa with burn injuries.

Thanks so much for helping me reach my goal!

I already paid to get to Nepal, I am only asking for your support by donating any amount you can to this cause. 100% of your donation  will go directly to The Avela Foundation.
