Our friend, Kelly Hunt, is a Public Diplomacy Officer with the U.S. State Department. She's a great friend. She's been in Afghanistan promoting human rights and was excited to be there. On April 6, 2013, she was injured in a suicide bombing in Afghanistan and is currently in hospital in Germany in critical condition.
Becky met Kelly at work. Brian and Regan met her through rowing. Jen, Beth and Valerie knew her from elementary school. She touched our lives in many ways and the last few days have been difficult for everyone. So in order to do something positive, the three of us decided to organize a fundraiser for Kelly and her family. All money that we receive will be donated directly to them.
On June 8, Regan will be climbing Mt. Rainier in Seattle, Washington. He was originally going to climb the mountain for fun. In light of Kellly's accident, he's now climbing Mt. Rainier for her and will stand on the summit on June 12 for Kelly.
