Father and Son hike Mt. Adams, donate to Mark’s foundation

Scott Shipman and his son Zeke walked in the 35-mile Memorial Birthday Walk this year as part of their training to climb Mt. Adams in Washington. At 12 years old, it was Zeke’s first attempt at a glaciated peak. He trained with his dad for three and a half months, getting up as early as 4:30 am before school, and up to 4 hours on Saturdays. His hard work and determination paid off on July 1 when he and his Dad summited Mt. Adams. They carried a banner with Mark’s picture to the summit and are making a donation to The Mark Forester Foundation in his honor.

We appreciate Scott and Zeke’s support and for sharing their experience with us. I’m sure Zeke now feels he can accomplish anything after working so hard and accomplishing this goal.
