Draft Day Raiders Message

April 29, 2021

I just recieved this message today from my Raider family.


Happy Draft Day. We hope you are staying warm and healthy on the mountain. We wanted to pass along a message from one of your teammates. We will be sending you a few of these throughout your journey. Hopefully it serves as some motivation to help you on your climb. We are all rooting for you!

Stay safe. Just Climb, Baby

Once a Raider, Always a Raider,
Shannon, Devon, Callie, & Katie


“Hello Mark,

Jeff Barnes here, your old teammate.

I am looking forward to seeing you at the top of Mt. Everest. Just wanted to let you know that myself, and other teammates are pulling for your success.

I commend you entirely on your bravery and strength because if anyone can do it, you can. I know it will be cold, so stay warm.

I will be looking for all the beautiful pictures that you will take to share with us.

Once a Raider- always a Raider!!

God bless you in your journey.
