My good friend Michael Brown isn't slowing down. As many of you know, he is the award-winning producer who created "Farther Than The Eye Can See," the film about my Everest climb, and most recently "High Ground," the film about our Soldiers To Summits expedition that premiered last month. Soon, Michael's next project "Out Living It" will make its world premier at the Aspen Shortsfest. This new film follows young cancer survivors on a week-long kayaking camp run by the great organization First Descents. The purpose of the program is to help people embrace life as they recover from an awful disease. While "Out Living It" is near completion, there is still a lot of post-production needed to really polish it off. So far, they have raised over $14,000 on their Kickstarter campaign and only have $7,000 to go towards their goal. This is a great cause and I hope you can help them out.
