BizComm alum Brian Myers has returned from his summit of Mt. Kilimanjaro in Tanzania, Africa, as part of his trek with the Livestrong Foundation's "Survivor Summit." This video, created by Roger Gant, chronicles the trip. Brian is the fundraising and events manager for Livestrong, and made the climb in an effort to raise money for cancer victims and their families. He is contributing anything he raises beyond the costs of the summit to the Huntington's Disease Society of America for research to end this deadly and heartbreaking disease that claimed the life of his father.
