IHC’s Current Fundraiser
This fall, our IHC CEO, Dr Kathleen Bonvicini, will ascend Mt. Kilimanjaro, the highest peak in Africa at 19,342 ft. She is making this a charity climb to benefit:
- Step Up Centre, a nonprofit school in Moshi,Tanzania, in dire need of expansion (where she volunteers), and
- Creation of an IHC scholarship fund in veterinary and human medicine to promote dissemination of IHC training.
In preparation for this arduous, high-altitude adventure, Kathleen is working with a personal trainer at The Edge, a local fitness center. She is also enrolled in a training and research effort at Quinnipiac University’s Center for Medicine, Nursing and Health Sciences. QU clinicians will help Kathleen with her physical conditioning and collect data on the physiological effects of the high-altitude climb.
There are three pathways to contribute to this exciting fundraising event:
1. Facebook donation page
2. Visit Kathleen’s GoFundMe page
3. If you feel more comfortable making a donation via check or credit card, you can contact IHC directly at (800) 800-5907 for details.
