Donations Follow Their Climb

LIAF was featured in Westbury Times last week. Continue on to read the full article.

When Garden City resident Kelly DeBusschere and her husband heard about the “29029 Everesting Challenge,”they didn’t hesitate to sign up. They saw it as a perfect opportunity to raise funds to donate to the Westbury-basedLong Island Alzheimer’s Foundation (LIAF) in honor of Kelly’s mother, whois battling Alzheimer’s disease. And raise funds they did—to date, they have donated over $12,000 to LIAF. LIAF Executive Director Tori Cohen noted, “Kelly’s efforts in this climb are beyond impressive. The determination that she had despite the inclement weather was inspiring to all of us. LIAF is so appreciative of Kelly and her husband’s commitment to raise funds to help support our programs that foster the independence and dignity of those individuals dealing with Alzheimer’s disease. The Challenge is aptly named "29029 Everesting" as 17 climbs to the summit of Stratton Mountain in Stratton, VT, equal 29,029 feet, the height of Mount Everest.
