To my dearest Climb for Albinism team. I wanted to take a moment to say how I proud I am of your incredible accomplishment. . What you accomplished was no simple challenge. In less than three days you hiked to 4100m through tough conditions. You began in the rain, slept in the cold, negotiated the vertical bog in muddy terrain, pushed through an 11 hr hike (some in the dark!) endured a sleepless night because of the altitude then turned around and descended like champions. For those that had to turn back for your own safety, you still succeeded as the goal was not to summit, but to get a feel for the thin air and to experience what it is to be on an expedition. I am blown away by your strength, resilience and commitment. Please take the time to celebrate your accomplishment. You achieved the extraordinary and you are extraordinary.
