Luke Timmerman's Everest Base Camp Trek

Luke Timmerman

Following a successful summit of Mt. Everest in 2018 and an extraordinary inaugural team summit of Mt. Kilimanjaro in 2019, Seattle writer and entrepreneur Luke Timmerman has set his sights on a new adventure: hiking the Himalayas’ storied trails to Everest Base Camp. Executives and investors from the biotech and pharmaceutical industries will come together to form Team Everest Base Camp and will journey to Nepal when safe dates for traveling and climbing are determined.

Each Team Everest Base Camp climber will raise $50,000 or more to support cancer research at Fred Hutch.
