Addicted to making change.

In 2005, Alex was diagnosed with a brain tumor and was subsequently operated on at Lurie Children's. The operation was a success and Alex has had no complications over a decade later. He currently serves on the foundation board at Lurie Children's, a truly unique one-of-a-kind hospital that is a huge source of pride for Chicago and the cause for which he is climbing!

Our Mission

Alexander Pancoe is attempting to fulfill a lifelong goal of completing the Explorer's Grand Slam. This includes climbing the highest mountains on each of the seven continents and ski traversing the North and South poles. This is an extreme and dangerous mountaineering challenge that less than 70 people worldwide and only 15 Americans have accomplished. By risking his life, Alexander hopes to raise over 1 million dollars to support Lurie Children's pediatric neurology program.
