Dear Jennifer,

As you're taking your summer vacations and relaxing before the start of the busy fall season, we at SADS want to let you know about our plans for the rest of the year.

2nd Annual Climb to Conquer SADS
July 9-12

We are excited to announce that with last year's great success of Climb to Conquer SADS, we are ready for a bigger and better CLIMB 08. This year's family seminars will again be held at the beautiful Alta Crystal Resort at the base of Mt. Rainier.

These event will coincide with several fundraising climbs of the Great Glacial Mountain, one of which will be lead by the famous mountaineer, John Roskelley.

This year instead of one large seminar, several more intimate seminars will be offered on a daily basis. In addition to the general seminars youth and teen seminars will be a wonderful addition this year. The seminars will be lead be Dr. Michael Ackerman, Dr. Chris Anderson, Dr. Susan Etheridge, Dr. Terrance Chun and other prestigious professionals in the field.

The seminars are free so come join the fun, and learn something more about SADS. There will be fun, games, hiking and learning for everyone. Bring the whole family!

All in the Family - SADS Welcomes the Whole Family

Plans are coming together for the Climb to Conquer SADS on Mt. Rainier (in Washington State) beginning July 8-12, 2008.

Rich Bennett (climb leader) and Dr. Chris Anderson, a Pediatric Electrophysiologist who practices in Spokane, Washington and friends will be climbing to the top of Mt. Rainier to raise money and awareness for SADS. Families are welcome to come cheer on the climbers and spend the weekend with SADS.

Climb headquarters will be the Alta Crystal Resort---a 22-acre resort tucked among 150-foot tall firs in the national forest at the White River entrance to Mt. Rainier National Park. The Ohanapecosh with its grove of 1000 year old trees is just 20-30 minutes south of there.

At the resort itself, you'll find miles of hiking and biking trails, a heated pool, a hot tub, a recreation lodge and a recreation field with volleyball, croquet, horseshoes and a bonfire pit. In the immediate area, you'll find horseback riding, and mountain bike rentals. It's also easy to make a day trip to Mt. St. Helens from there. Families can stay at the resort with us or choose from several other resorts in the area as well as several sites for camping.

We'd love to have you and your family join us in Washington State! Watch our website for updates and join us in July! If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me at or call us at 801-531-0937.

NEW this year, MORE Seminar choices

Last year we had one wonderful, successful and educational seminar. It was so great, we decided to have MORE, MORE, MORE. This year each day during CLIMB 08 specialized seminars will be offered by our devoted Doctors and staff. Seminars will cover topics such as AED's, exercise and medications, family pedigrees, CPR and new developments in research and treatment. A very exciting addition to this year's seminar schedule is a whole series of classes especially for youth and teens. This year CLIMB is MORE accessible for everyone. Bring the whole family.

Roskelley to Return

Author and photographer, John Roskelley, is considered one of the world's top Himalayan climbers and adventurers. He has spent 41 years climbing throughout the world, successfully reaching the summit of four 8,000-meter peaks, including the two highest, Everest and K2. John's forte is climbing extreme rock and ice routes at high altitude and has set the bar worldwide with ascents of Uli Biaho in Pakistan in 1979, and Tawoche in Nepal in 1989, neither of which have been repeated.

John has written three adventure books and many articles for national magazines. His photography has appeared on the cover of National Geographic, numerous book and catalog covers, advertisements and posters.

John will again lead a separate team up Mt. Rainier for Climb to Conquer SADS. Climbers who donate $2,500 or more can join him on this exhilarating journey. There are a limited number of spots available. If you are interested in joining this expedition, please contact Aliah immediately at

Two other expedition teams will also be summiting the mountain during CLIMB 08. One of them is an all female team.
