Mount Everest Climb

A local man is headed for the trip of a lifetime, to Mount Everest. GKN Rockford is sending Kirk Jones to the world's tallest point, there he will join others from around the world to watch two men take off over the mountain in hang gliders.

They will be hiking seven miles a day, a journey that requires special training for the high altitude trek. The expedition is a fundraiser and the goal is to raise more than a million dollars for several charities world wide.
