Will Cross Raising Awareness for Diabetes Through Climbing

Will Cross Set to Climb Makalu

AMK adventure athlete Will Cross will soon attempt a climb of Makalu, the fifth highest mountain in the world (27,824ft), located 21 miles east of Mount Everest.

Cross will depart shortly for this monumental peak as part of his “Giant Mountain Challenge” — a quest to climb six of the highest peaks in the world.  Diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes 30 years ago, Cross is pursuing this latest challenge as part of his ongoing effort to demonstrate that one can lead an extraordinary life with diabetes, an incurable condition and a global pandemic.  AMK and its parent company Tender Corp. are sponsoring Cross for the climb and other expeditions he’ll be participating in throughout the year.

Adventure Medical Kits and its parent company Tender Corp. have joined forces with world renowned high altitude mountaineer and adventure athlete Will Cross to help educate the public on the importance of proper foot care for people with diabetes.

Diagnosed with Type I diabetes 32 years ago, Cross has not let his condition stop him from amassing an impressive list of accomplishments, which includes successfully climbing the highest peaks — including Mount Everest – on all seven continents; walking to both the North and South Poles; and participating in expeditions in Patagonia, Mountains of the Moon and the Sahara Desert.
