Pre-Climb Interview!

Why have you chosen to climb in the Shine On! Fuji Challenge?

I have worked with youth in Japan in educational settings for several years. I will probably relocate to the U.S. in the near future. I have performed some tasks here that I consider accomplishments, but climbing Fuji is not yet one of them. I learned of the work of the Tyler Foundation from Halt-Fast Cycling. I hope that climbing Fuji will enable me to contribute to their work, to express my thanks for the current good health of my own children, and to make my experience of Japan more complete.

Do you have a message for your supporters?

I strongly encourage everyone to contribute to the work of the Tyler Foundation by participating in this climb, especially experienced mountaineers. As an alternative, please support at least one of the challengers. The love you take is equal to the love you make.

Thank You, Daniel!
