Yet her efforts raised more than $85,000 from ATA(American Tinnitus Association) members who understood the value of dreaming big while taking small steps to reach an ultimate goal.
Now, seven years older and seven years wiser, Donna is back. This summer, she and a small climbing team will return to Mount Rainier with a new plan to reach the summit. They call their effort "Expedition Hopeful Cure II," and it's loaded with challenges.
- Fundraising goal: $150,000 in donations- Distance to the summit: more than 8 miles- Number of footsteps to reach the goal: 28,160
None of that deters Donna. As she says, "If I'm lucky enough to see a cure for tinnitus in my lifetime, it will be absolute heaven. If not in my lifetime, then to have contributed in some way to the development of a cure will be enough."
Donna Brown of Broomfield, Colorado, has been an active ATA member since 1996.
