Donor Spotlight: Philanthropists Making A Difference
JT Mestdagh was born with VATER/ VACTERL syndrome. He’s been coming to Children’s Hospital Colorado for treatment for years, and with the help of his doctor, Alberto Pena, MD, Mestdagh is living a full, happy life. Now an adult, Mestdagh is so grateful for the care he received that he formed the JT Mestdagh Foundation to help other patients facing similar challenges.
Mestdagh kickstarted his fundraising efforts by hiking 29,029 vertical feet – the equivalent of Mt. Everest — earlier this year. Donors generously supported his climb to help Mestdagh make a gift of $20,000, followed by another gift of $5,000, to Children’s Colorado.
Raising money for charity final totals are in and wow he raised a lot of money for The Ronald McDonald House, Children’s Hospital of Colorado, and The Tim Tebow Foundation. Thank you to everyone who showed support and donated. Click below to watch the video recap!
