Woo-hoo, the climbers are barely off Mt. Katahdin and Brian Neider of Climb4acure has issued a challenge: if we can raise an additional $2,500, he’ll match it with a $5,000 gift from Climb4acure! Whoa!

The Fundraising Thermometer on this site has been updated. You can donate to an individual climber or specifically to Meet the Climb4acure Challenge! Once we reach $17, 500 that amount will magically increase to $22,500 of support for the Portland Community Free Clinic!

We raised $15,000 for the Katahdin Climb with donations from 129 people (thank you!). This was not a campaign of large donations from corporate sponsors–rather it was friends and family pitching in to support our climbers with gifts of $25 (23 people), $50 (31 people), or $100 (32 people). Donations ranged from $5 to $500, with one large gift from Climb4acure. If everyone reading this makes a small donation, we will reach our additional $2,500 goal in just a few days!

So, please, friends–reach into your pocketsĀ one more time and help us meet this additional goal! And if you haven’t donated yet, here’s your chance to make a difference. Thank you in advance for your support!
