Alex's Everest Base Camp Trek for Avela

Alex's Everest Base Camp Trek for Avela

Personal message

This April, I will be trekking to the base of Mount Everest to raise money for The Avela Foundation.

This remarkable non-profit is dedicated in helping children with burn injuries from South Africa on their road to physical and emotional recovery.

I’ve paid for my trip. I am only asking for your support by donating any amount you can to this incredible cause.

100% of your donation will go directly to The Avela Foundation.  

The trek to Mount Everest Base Camp will be mentally and physically challenging, but nothing compared to the challenges these burn survivors face each day. 

Click Donate to make a secure online donation, and help us change the lives of thousands of children from South Africa with burn injuries.


Thank you,
