Latest posts by heather (see all)

This week The Home Loan Expert Climbing Team (Ryan, Jaidev, Karolina, and Lance) are leaving for Jackson Hole, Wyoming for the Climb For the Kids 2018, and they are ready to climb!  The team has been training for this mountain for months, and all of that training is about to come to the forefront with the team ready to summit the Grand Teton.  The climb will be tough, but they are ready and will be updating us through the next few days on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram on the status of the climb and how they are getting ready.

So far the team has raised well over $25,000 for our five charities and we are going to keep raising money for the next few weeks to try to help as many kids as possible.  We have been working hard with appearances on multiple radio shows and having the guys from 101 Sports’ The Fastlane in our office yesterday.  Our five charities can all use any help that you can provide, so please donate if you haven’t already, or donate again of you can spare it!

SSM Cardinal Glennon Children’s Hospital is a nationally-acclaimed children’s hospital located right here in my hometown of St. Louis.  They do not turn down any kid based on their ability to pay, so they need a TON of money to keep helping kids.  They’re awesome and help a ton of kids from all over the country.

Friends of Kids With Cancer is another St. Louis-based charity that’s devoted to enriching the daily lives of children undergoing treatment for, and survivors of, cancer and blood-related diseases. Providing care through the educational and recreational support needed as a result of the long hours of chemotherapy, illness and isolation.

Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt is one of the nation’s leading children’s hospitals, treating and helping to prevent a full range of pediatric health issues from colds and broken bones to complex heart diseases and cancer. Named among the nation’s “Best Children’s Hospitals” for 12th consecutive years.

Alec Ingram was first diagnosed with a rare form of bone cancer when he was just nine years old, in 2015. Since then he and his family have endured months of chemotherapy treatments, numerous surgeries, and weekly stays at SSM Cardinal Glennon Children’s Hospital.

Fight DMD (Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy) – Jonah and Emory Marlin were diagnosed with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy(DMD) at the ages of 5 and 2. DMD is a horrible disease that is fatal 100% of the time with no current cure. This disease affects 1 in 3500 boys born each year with no ethnic or geographical boundaries.

You can learn more about the climb here, and find more ways to help.  These kids are counting on you to help make a difference in their lives so donate today.  All money goes directly to the charities.
