Donor Story: Taking It to New Heights
Anne Henri, a beloved NEO Kids nurse, sadly passed away in December 2015. To celebrate her life, Anne’s cousin, Lianne Henri, climbed to one of the highest peaks in the world. Along her journey, she raised money in support of NEO Kids–a special place to Anne, and a cause the Henri family is passionate about.
Anne loved caring for the many children that came through the clinics during her time there. To honour her memory, Lianne completed a 12-day expedition to Nepal where she trekked up to the Everest Base Camp, a staggering 5,545 meters in height. Lianne created a Go Fund Me page where she shared the journey she was undertaking.
After Lianne returned from her journey, she presented NEO Kids with a cheque for the NEO Kids Foundation in honour of Anne. Lianne’s journey was a touching tribute to her cousin, and the legacy she left at NEO Kids.
“Anne was a beautiful person who loved people unconditionally. She touched the lives of so many and always inspired me to give back. I wanted to honour not only my cousin but the passion she had for children and NEO Kids.”– Lianne Henri, NEO Kids Supporter
