I’m an avid backpacker. I hiked 220 miles along the John Muir Trail, I’ve backpacked all across Yosemite, and I’ve traversed Sequoia National Park. My dream has always been to hike Mt. Kilimanjaro in Tanzania.
Recently, a family at my synagogue connected me with their son in South Africa who is organizing a group of guys to hike Kilimanjaro. The group is raising funds for a wonderful organization called The Friendship Circle. The Friendship Circle connects teen volunteers with special needs children to build lasting friendships, share amazing experiences together, and help support their families.
As a filmmaker, I would be traveling with the group and filming a documentary about the hike and the men who I will be traveling with. The documentary will be used to bolster future donation efforts for The Friendship Circle and raise awareness of this wonderful program.
Thank you for your support and allowing my passion for filmmaking and backpacking to help those in need.
