Liam's Fundraising Story: More Than Just a Trek

Northeastern student, Liam Mahoney, will be traveling with the rest of his classmates to the base of the tallest mountain in the world, Mt. Everest in May 2019. They’ll be fundraising the cost of their trip in aid of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Mass Bay, which for some students on this trip is a cool way to support a local charity, but for Liam it’s a much bigger purpose.

UConn Siblings Take on Machu Picchu

We love highlighting our student trekkers and after hearing about Ashley & Tyler Sundara, we knew this was another opportunity to do just that. These siblings are mechanical engineering majors at the University of Connecticut and apart of the Choose a Challenge team we have set up there. They've been fundraising for months now and are getting closer to their trip to Machu Picchu in May 2018. We sat down to find out how they've been doing and what it means to both of them to take on the trip of a lifetime with each other.
