What:

On September 23, 2009, Ashley and Anna Curry will depart for Africa and attempt to climb Mt. Kilimanjaro, the world's tallest free-standing mountain. This will be the challenge of a lifetime for this father-daughter team.

The Goal:

Ashley and Anna hope to raise awareness about OI, as well as raise much-needed funding for OI research. Because the highest point on Mt. Kilimanjaro is approximately 19,400 feet, Ashley and Anna hope to raise $19,400.00 for the Osteogenesis Imperfecta Foundation.

Who:

Anna Curry is an adult with OI. She is a labor & employment attorney in Birmingham, Alabama. Anna graduated from Vanderbilt University with a degree in English Literature. Anna received her J.D. degree from the University of Alabama School of Law. An advocate for the OI community, Anna currently serves on the Board of Directors for the OI Foundation. Anna views this climb as a personal challenge, but also as a means of raising awareness and providing funding for this vital organization.

Ashley Curry (Anna's father) is a retired FBI Agent and presently works as a Corporate Recruiter for EBSCO Industries, Inc., located in Birmingham, Alabama. He sees the climb as an opportunity of a lifetime and feels that Anna's attempt might be an inspiration to others facing physical challenges.
