For 15 days from April 22 to May 6, 2018, a dedicated group of Markham Stouffville Hospital (MSH) supporters will embark on Trek Everest - a journey from Kathmandu, Nepal, through the Himalayas up to Base Camp on Mount Everest, the highest mountain in the world. This Adventure of a Lifetime celebrates the 65th anniversary of Sir Edmund Hilary's ascent to the top, and will be accompanied by his son Peter Hilary.
Funds raised through this Trek will outfit a much-needed Operating Room (OR) at MSH. To meet increasing volumes, the hospital needs a new OR designed for the specialized needs of fluoroscopy — or real-time x-ray video — an essential tool used in many types of procedures such as kidney stone removal. This will immediately benefit the urology program as well as enable future growth opportunities for other surgical procedures.
In addition, this journey will make a difference in helping to rebuild Nepal. While there, medical professionals from our expedition will volunteer at a local hospital recently devastated by a severe earthquake.
