Make-A-Wish with #16841 Andrew Weibrecht
Dudley camper #16841 Andrew Weibrecht is one of our former Olympians. He has taken on an exciting challenge to ski all 46 of the Adirondack High Peaks. By doing so, he hopes to raise more than $15,000 to benefit the Make-a-Wish Foundation. Andrew is getting close to his goal, and the Dudley and Kiniya community can put him over the top.
In its January 19-25, 2022 newspaper, the Lake Champlain Weekly, featured a story about #16841 Andrew Weibrecht’s quest. While many of us remember Andrew and his brothers #16241 Jonathan and #17441 Ethan from their days at Camp in the late 1990s, most will remember Andrew for his World Cup and Olympic skiing performances. As a Super-G Olympic skier, Andrew won a bronze medal in the 2010 Olympic games and a silver medal in 2014.
Today, Andrew is working to help the other fellow by raising funds to grant wishes for children with critical illnesses. Says Andrew, “I’m doing my COVID compliant version of ‘Ski for Wishes.’ I plan to ski all 46 of the Adirondack High Peaks and hope to raise $15,000 along the way. We are close to reaching our financial goal, and I continue to work on finishing the mountain quest. This year’s return to the cold winters of earlier days has upped the challenge.”
As of this writing, Andrew has raised $12,788. With the help of the Dudley and Kiniya communities, we can push Andrew up and over the top before the end of February. Visit his “Ski for Wishes” site and donate today. Says Andrew, “No matter the circumstances, every child deserves a childhood. Life-changing wishes wouldn’t happen without the power of generous donors. Your support gives children much-needed hope for brighter days ahead.”
Please consider supporting Andrew in his mission to reach the Ski for Wishes goal. Andrew’s example is just another illustration of what it means to put the other fellow first. You can read the entire Lake Champlain Weekly article about Andrew here.
