Raising Money for the Nova Biomedical Scholarship Foundation!

By BioProfile Applications

As most of you all know, each year Nova Biomedical donates over $100,000 in scholarship money to the children of Nova employees. Next year will be the 25th annual Scholarship Dinner and to commemorate this wonderful foundation, BioProfile Applications would like to raise a minimum of $3000 by attempting to hike all 48 peaks (greater than 4,000 feet of elevation) of the White Mountains.

BioProfile Applications, which includes Matt McRae, Brian Goulart, Scott Granger, and Fay Hardy, will attempt to hike as many peaks as we can before the 2014 Scholarship Dinner. This endeavor is not an easy feat. The total elevation gain of these peaks is equivalent to climbing to the top of the Empire State Building nearly 150 times or hiking Mount Everest 8 times!!

We are asking for your support and contributions. We are accepting sponsorships for each peak that we climb. Donations will be collected one month prior to the Scholarship.

Photos of the applications group will be taken at the summit of each peak and posted to the I:drive as proof of our commitment. In addition, the progress of our endeavor will be published on our website at www.BPAppsHikesTheWhites.com.

If you would like to help us achieve our goal by making a contribution, please contact me at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or click here. There is also a sign-up sheet in Tech Support.

We greatly appreciate your involvement in helping us achieve our goal!

Become a Sponsor! Thank you for your contribution!
