Flying High

Matt Murray high on Lobuche

Matt Murray is the kind of guy every expedition should have.  A First Officer with United Airlines, Matt got wind of the Soldiers to the Summit Expedition and immediately drank the Kool-Aid.  Then he set out to convince his colleagues in the Air Line Pilots Association to dig into their wallets to support the expedition.  To date they're donated approximately $18,000. 

And, on October 15, 2010 Matt reached the summit of 20,075 foot Lobuche Peak, along with our soldiers and Everest guides.  Great work Matt, and thanks!  You can read about it below:

  1. Not to mention he has a great heart and is a good friend. Matt is sincerely concerned about his fellow veterans and was a great source of encouragement along the trek. By supporting Matt you are supporting all of the veterans that he has come in contact with. You are also supporting World Team Sports and the veterans that they have and will come in touch with. So please take time to get to know Matt and support him in raising money for this project.
