We here at PR HQ are very proud to announce our association with Love Hope Strength Foundation and their next fantasic initiative, Everest Rocks!
For the uninitiated, LHS has been organising major events around the world including Empire Rocks (benefit concert at the Empire State Building in NY) to help fight cancer and the LHS Army is growing! You can check out their website at www.lovehopestrength.org.
Cancer is one of the world’s most powerful killers and will touch each and every one of us in our lifetime. It knows no borders and see’s no color, race, religion, age or socio-economic demographic. It is a global issue in need of support from a worldwide network.
Love Hope Strength Foundation (LHSF) is an international charity with chapters in the US, UK and Australia. Founded by leukemia survivors Mike Peters of the Welsh Rock Band the Alarm and President of CSI Entertainment James Chippendale with the goal that all people should have the same opportunities they did to overcome cancer. That includes access to information, quality cancer treatment and the best medication available.
Through innovative concerts and climbs, LHSF will be providing critical funding for cancer centers worldwide so that ALL people have access to quality treatment and are given the best chance at survival.
I am very proud to be associated with Love Hope Strength and will be promoting their next initiative, the Everest Rocks concert at Mt Everest!
EVEREST ROCKS. This October will be the most momentous climb and concert yet for the LHS Army – benefiting The Nepal Cancer Relief Society (NCRS). Cancer survivors and co founders of the Love Hope Strength Foundation (LHSF) Mike Peters and James Chippendale will lead 40 musicians, cancer survivors and mountaineers to Base Camp to perform an acoustic concert to help the Bhaktapur Cancer Hospital build the infrastructure of its clinic, NCRS, by providing them with much needed equipment and funding. In a country where the Avg. annual income is $300 a year our donation and support is going a long way to save lives NOW.
“Everest Rocks” is a fourteen day trek and acoustic concert at the base camp of Mt Everest, with a grand finale rock concert in Kathmandu. The finale concert will host 800 attendees in the breathtaking Gokarna Forest in the shadows of Mt. Everest. The entire journey will be captured by an MTV and BBC documentary team headed by Alex Coletti (the acclaimed producer of MTV’s ‘Unplugged’ series). The taping will include the training, kickoff events, trek and base camp acoustic set. The trek will also be captured by Everest summitters and writer Alan Hobson and photojournalist Jake Norton**. The ever-growing list of performers includes: Mike Peters (The Alarm), Slim Jim Phantom (The Stray Cats), Dave Wakeling (The English Beat), Glenn Tillbrook (Squueze), Nick Harper (legendary UK fold artist) and local Nepalese artists.
