Most inspirational stories wouldn’t exist without key supporters. By failing to recognize caregivers and important allies, we would miss the beauty behind life’s toughest battles. In the case of Colton Harrington, a three-year-old diagnosed with Leukemia, a special person is fighting for his recovery.
When Ryan Kushner learned of Colton’s diagnosis, he decided to raise money to help single mother, Maggie Marzonie, pay for her son’s treatment. As a mountaineer, Ryan creatively developed a way to help a boy in need while simultaneously pursing his passion: summiting insanely tall peaks. Along with a strong team of climbers, Ryan reached the 23,406ft peak of Lenin in Kyrgyzstan.

Wishing strength and love to Colton, his family and friends. I am rooting for you!
