Alan Arnette Summits Mt. Elbrus

Posted: Aug. 11, 2011

Alan Arnette has announced that he has summitted Mr. Elbrus in Russia.

Alan posted an audio dispatch this morning announcing the summit and said it took the team about 7.5 hours to get up to the West Summit. Mt. Elbrus is the fifth climb in The 7 Summits Climb for Alzheimer’s: Memories are Everything campaign.
 
Alan asks that people pledge a penny per foot for the climb, or about $100 for Elbrus, to go to Cure Alzheimer’s Fund, National Family Caregivers Association and the Alzheimer’s Association.
