The Markham Stouffville Hospital Trekking team’s journey is in full swing as they continue their mission to climb Mount Everest. The team’s adventure from Kathmandu to the Himalayas (and LaBouche) to raise funds for a new operating room at MSH, runs April 22 – May 6.

The trek also celebrates the 65th anniversary of Sir Edmund Hilary’s journey to the top of the mountain – the world’s largest. Not only has Hilary’s Peter joined the team on the trek but so have local medical workers who will be raising their own funds for a local hospital in grave need.
