until the Kili Climb!

The Kilimanjaro Climb for Usher Syndrome

Hear See Hope assembled teams to Climb Mt. Kilimanjaro in August 2018 to raise awareness and funds for Usher syndrome, the most common cause of deaf-blindness in the United States. We are a 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization founded by Todd and Lane McKittrick to  raise funds to sustain the fight against Usher syndrome. About 10-15,000 people live with Usher syndrome in the United States, including Lane and Todd’s sons Conner and Dalton.  Thank you for your support of our climbers and our mission to prevent, treat, and cure Usher syndrome.
