Pierre-L. Baribeau climbs Island Peak, a peak in the Himalayas (Nepal), to raise funds for research on respiratory diseases

Pierre-L. Baribeau, a Lavery partner, is a member of an expedition that aims to raise funds to help the Foundation of the Hôpital Sacré-Cœur de Montréal support research on respiratory illnesses. The team, which left Québec City April 13, intends to climb Mount Everest – nothing less! Last April 25, during the first leg of the trip a group of six trekkers – including Mr. Baribeau – and their guide reached the top of the Island Peak (6 189 m), after a “fairly trying” ascension which three of their companions had to give up.
