It wasn’t a banjo on his knee, but a guitar on his back ...
Scottsdale Firefighter Todd Pendleton carried an Alice Cooper-autographed Fender on an 8-week-long adventure to the summit of Mt. Everest to raise money for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. Pendleton wants to bring awareness to those suffering from leukemia and lymphoma. He is auctioning the guitar on eBay June 20 – 27 and donating the proceeds to LLS. His fascinating story, photos and information about the eBay auction (starting at approx-imately 8 p.m. June 20) is: Climb for the Cure on Facebook: www.facebook.com/tpendletonclimb.
Pendleton not only is a firefighter but he is also a hiking guide throughout the Southwest. He has been the guide for the Team in Training - Leukemia and Lymphoma Society participants. Throughout these adventures, he has been inspired by their stories of tragedy and triumph. When asked to be a part of an expedition to Everest, Pendleton immediately thought of raising money for LLS and the many people battling blood cancers. “Climb for the Cure” was born.
Todd has raised nearly $20,000 for LLS. If you can help him reach his goal, please click here to make a donation.
