The Entire ‘On Site’ CFAC Team

On September 4th and 5th, 2010, 14 intrepid members of the dental profession put their money where their mouths (and feet) were by successfully scaling the 10,056 foot above sea level Middle Sister of Oregon’s Three Sisters Mountains known collectively (from north to south) as Faith, Hope, and Charity.

“It took a lot more than ‘Hope’ to get to the top.” says CFAC executive director, and American Dental Marketing’s president and event organizer Daniel A. ‘Danny’ Bobrow. “These professionals committed themselves fully, both in terms of time and a willingness to step outside their comfort zones, to meet this challenge head-on. Their grit and determination are beyond impressive.”

As of this writing the three Peak Performers, in terms of funds raised, are:

Rob Strain and Team, of Palm Springs, CA, with nearly $7,000 raised
Warren Krutchick and Team, of West Seneca, NY raising nearly $8,000
and
Glenn Spencer and Team, of Birmingham, MI, at over $20,000!!

All net proceeds go to support the CFAC oral health education and treatment projects in Nepal and Guatemala. Plans are in place to expand to India in 2011, and Vietnam in 2012.

Also along for the ride were Krutchick’s daughter Abbey, Dr. Strain’s Team Members Alanna Bird and Britney Green, CFAC Board Members Dr. Bill Blatchford, Dr. Grant Ritchey, and Steven Franklin, JD,, Drs. Aladean Attar of Barrington, IL, Jeff Baumrucker of Newport Ritchey, FL, Dan Marut and his wife Samantha, of Ashland, OR and Bobrow. The 5,000 foot summit and descent required more than thirteen hours to complete. Conditions ranged from gently inclined pine forest to a 35 degree ice face requiring helmet, harness, ice axe and crampons negotiate.
