As many of you know, we began production on the documentary feature film series, "10 Mountains 10 Years", about our international team of mountain climbers to summit 10 of the world's greatest peaks to raise awareness and funds for Alzheimer's and Parkinson's Disease. We will be filming in 7 countries and 6 continents, from Mont Blanc to Mount Everest. The films will track the greatest advances and climbs happening in the medical community alongside the team's climbs, the realities of the day-to-day lives of those personally afflicted, and the caretakers who stand beside them.
We are working in collaboration with the Alzheimer's Association, the Michael J. Fox Foundation, and the Freddy Powers Foundation. This year, production crews are working together from New York, Oregon, Texas, Colorado, and California. We are currently in discussions with several celebrity narrators. International premiere and release in spring of 2009.
100% of the proceeds from the film will go directly to Alzheimer's and Parkinson's treatments and medical research to help bring us closer to a cure. The entire epic is being self-funded, through corporate sponsors, grants, donations, and the support of thousands of people around the world.
We are seeking your personal help to support the film by purchasing a "special thanks" credit. For $20, your name will appear in the end credits, making you a lasting part of this enormous endeavor. Such purchases will go toward production expenses to make this a reality.

This is a story of hope, the willingness of the human spirit to dream of something better, and the capacity of regular people from all walks of life to come together and change this world. The greatest view we will have from any summit is the view of who we become by doing it to help others.
30 million families worldwide are directly affected by Alzheimer's or Parkinson's.
Please forward this on to everyone you know and post on your myspace and facebook pages.

Wishing you all the best!
