What is Megan doing?
In June 2020, I am embarking on a three-day mountaineering expedition with my Johns Hopkins Carey Business School colleagues. During this three-day adventure, I will climb 12,280 feet to reach Washington State's second-highest peak situated on Mt. Adams.
Why is Megan doing this?
Becoming part of the Johns Hopkins community through my acceptance into Johns Hopkins Carey Business School's MBA program has become one of my most significant accomplishments. This expedition will allow me the opportunity to challenge myself and discover new boundaries. These lessons will help me grow as a leader and will impact my professional experiences in the future.
Additionally and most importantly, this expedition will allow me to give back to my Johns Hopkins community, as this climb will fund Dr. Leisha Emens and Dr. Peter Calabresi (Johns Hopkins researchers), who are developing a new treatment for breast cancer and multiple sclerosis (MS).
How will your donations help?
Two-thirds of all donations are used in Dr. Emens and Dr. Calabresi's breast cancer and MS clinical-based research, and the remaining one-third of donations are used to cover my mountaineering-related expenses (e.g., equipment rentals, meals, permit, et al.).
A Special "Thank You"
Thank you for taking the time to learn more about my upcoming mountaineering journey. I am hopeful that this adventure will help me grow as a leader and provide researchers with the financial support they need to improve the lives of those who have been and will be diagnosed with breast cancer or MS.
