"Do you have a dream? How high does it go?" Dream Mountains Foundation raises funds for charities focused on education, opportunity, and compassion.
When Canadian businessman Shawn Dawson set out to climb the highest peak on each of the seven continents he felt that it would be more meaningful if his quest was part of a larger goal. He chose seven charities that reflect the mantra that helped him make the tough climb up to the top of Mount Everest, "one step at a time."
Any climber will tell you that making it up a mountain combines team work, individual effort, and a little luck. We invite you to join our Everest 2012 Basecamp charity trek. Challenge yourself to an experience that will change both your life and those who will benefit from the funds raised.
