Bellingham climber summits Mount Everest

BELLINGHAM, Wash. (Metro) — A Bellingham man is done with his quest to reach the summit on all seven continents, and his latest venture took him to the top of Mount Everest.

The “Bellingham Herald” reports 50-year-old Dave Mauro reached the top of the world’s tallest mountain in Nepal on Monday as part of a team of 21.

Mauro scaled the mountain as part of his “Climbing for Kids” campaign, the goal of which is to raise $29,029 or a dollar for each foot of Mount Everest.

Proceeds will go to the Bellingham Boys & Girls Club.
