Hello! My name is Elias Blanca and I am 15 years old. I am the grandson of Mike Navolio. Some activities I enjoy doing are Gymnastics, Kendama, and Skateboarding.
I climbed Mt. Kilimanjaro in 2018 because I recognized the need for clean water when I first visited Malawi in 2012 with my family. I want to help raise money and awareness for the clean water crisis. I also want to climb mountains because it’s an amazing experience and I really want to challenge myself. This November I will be climbing Everest Base Camp with my grandpa on the 1st Annual Everest Base Camp Clean Water Climb!
In 2012, when I first visited Child Legacy in Malawi, Africa with my family my mom went on to successfully climbed Mt. Kilimanjaro that year with my grandpa. Some of my other experiences during my visits to Africa included visiting Malawi villages, witnessing water well repairs, and telling bible stories. I had so much fun during both trips!
This year, I am so excited to trek Everest Base Camp and see the Himalayas!
Please help me reach my goal of raising $5000, enough to repair 4 broken water wells in rural Malawi, which will benefit about 8,000 people with clean, safer drinking water!
