My first reaction to “rock musicians on Everest” … ah, another media stunt.

… our most momentous climb and concert benefiting The Nepal Cancer Relief Society (NCRS). Cancer survivors and co founders of the Love Hope Strength Foundation (LHSF) Mike Peters and James Chippendale will lead 40 musicians, cancer survivors and mountaineers to Base Camp to perform an acoustic concert to help the Bhaktapur Cancer Hospital build the infrastructure of its clinic, NCRS, by providing them with much needed equipment and funding. In a country where the Avg. annual income is $300 a year our donation and support is going a long way to save lives NOW.
… The entire journey will be captured by a documentary team headed by Alex Coletti (the acclaimed producer of MTVâ€™s â€˜Unpluggedâ€™ series). The taping will include the training, kickoff events, trek and base camp acoustic set. …
And we can even apply to join their trekking support team for future Love Hope Strength events like this.
