Why? My son, Ricky Zinter (before his death in 2015) and his wife Sarah Robbins have been actively involved in supporting the Kendall And Taylor Atkinson foundation (KATA). Kendall and Taylor were childhood friends of Sarah, and both died of Fanconi anemia, a rare genetic disease.
KATA was founded to fund research into a cure. I want to use my hike as a fundraiser to support the KATA Foundation. This will allow me to carry on some of the work previously done by Ricky.
