My name is Gavin J. Monsour and much like my literary friend and fellow adventurer, Geronimo Stilton, I too am planning on climbing to the top of the famous Mount Kilimanjaro. When I first read Mighty Mount Kilimanjaro (when I was 6… actually, dad read it to me), I told my mom and dad that I wanted to accomplish this feat. The original plan was to do this when I got a bit older, but with some persistence I convinced my parents, and the Tanzanian authorities to let me climb when I am ten.
The training has already begun, but the actual climb date will be in June 2015. The climb has become a pretty big deal according to my parents. Turns out I will be the youngest Canadian to summit Kilimanjaro. So to up the ante a bit I decided that I would like to raise money for Camp Oochigeas, a camp for kids with cancer. So make sure that you hit the Donate Now button here and help me beat my goal of $50,000.

About Camp Oochigeas
Founded in 1983, Camp Oochigeas (Ooch) has been providing magical camp experiences for children with and affected by childhood cancer. Camp Ooch is much more than a summer camp. Ooch is the only overnight camp in Ontario to offer onsite IV chemotherapy treatment and blood transfusions. Camp Ooch also offers year-round programs for children with and affected by childhood cancer in Muskoka, at The Hospital for Sick Children (SickKids), various other paediatric hospitals, regional healthcare centres, and Ooch Downtown in the heart of Toronto. Through these programs, Camp Oochigeas provides fun and meaningful experiences to approximately 1,200 children with and affected by childhood cancer each year, at no cost to their families. This is all made possible by the generous support of donors and volunteers.
