Hey Team International!

WELCOME TO EXPEDITION MT KINABALU 2014!

Lace up your hiking boots and get ready for the experience of a lifetime!

We are honored that you have chosen to be a part of our fourth annual event on August 15-17th, 2014.

We are raising funds for COALITION DUCHENNE, a non-profit charity that raises global awareness and funding to find treatments and a cure for Duchenne muscular dystrophy.

Click the link below to take a look at what Coalition Duchenne has been up to!

Please carefully read the details below regarding the climb:

You will be part of raising global awareness and funding research to find treatments and a cure for Duchenne muscular dystrophy. By climbing, you are making a significant difference in the lives of those affected with Duchenne.

Duchenne is a fatal, progressive muscle wasting condition that affects one in 3,500 boys worldwide. Duchenne robs boys of their ability to walk, breath, eat and speak, and eventually takes their lives, often before they reach age 20. It leaves their minds unaffected and full of dreams.

The impact of Duchenne is felt across the globe, from the USA to Asia, Australia, Europe, India, South America and Africa. Duchenne knows no boundaries, and does not discriminate between race, culture, socioeconomic status or country

Coalition Duchenne has reserved 100 spots on the mountain! This is one of the largest Malaysian annual charity events. You will be part of an international team climbing for a shared cause. This is an amazing opportunity to climb Mt Kinabalu, a protected World Heritage site.

This year we will be making history! For our cause, and for the first time ever, a world-renowned Wingsuit pilot will fly over Mt Kinabalu! You will be a witness to this spectacular flyby as he soars overhead.

We are climbing for the thousands of boys and young men who face challenges greater than any mountain peak.

One hundred percent of proceeds will fund initiatives like our cardiac stem cell research at Cedars-Sinai in Los Angeles which will help all Duchenne hearts. http://tinyurl.com/l8fwaak

We will help you set up a personal fundraising page (if you choose) to raise the donation part of your climbing fee.

TOTAL COST PER CLIMBER: USD 4,000

COST BREAKDOWN:

  • USD 2,000 - Average cost of international return flight from Los Angeles
  • USD 500 - Cost of two-day all-inclusive climb
  • USD 1,500 - Your charitable donation (100 percent of this amount funds research)

-----------

TOTAL: USD 4,000

(Family rate available)

To secure your spot, please make a deposit of USD 500 which will go toward your total cost.

  • Return international flight from Los Angeles to Kota Kinabalu, Sabah, Malaysia
  • Witness the first ever flyby over Mt Kinabalu by a wingsuit pilot
  • Guaranteed entry to climb Mt Kinabalu, a World Heritage Site
