DNA to Everest

Take Your DNA to the “Top of the World”, Mount Everest

Scan 1

Stephen Wilson of Nanaimo, B.C. is a committed man who will be climbing Mount Everest in April of 2015. Stephen has made another commitment – to take your DNA to “The Top of the World” – the peak of Mt. Everest. Why? So you can say that you – at least part of you – has conquered Everest and sits on top of the world!

Stephen is the father of five and the grandfather of five. Stephen is motivated by the death of his wife, Di (Diane Caillet) in 2007. Since her loss Stephen has climbed six of the Seven Summits on the globe, the tallest mountain on each of the 7 continents. Everest is the last and most gruelling challenge. Mt. Everest will be the incredible pinnacle of his climbing career.

Stephen also wants to help two young Afghani women reach their educational goals. For a donation of just $25 he will take your DNA to the top of Everest!

All of your donation will go to support these young women who are sponsored by the Wiltshire Education Society (WES) to complete their business degree at Vancouver Island University. See our home page for their story.


Here’s How It Works:

  • 1. Print and fill out this form: Send Your DNA to Everest Form
  • 2. Add a sample of your DNA (a lock of hair) along with your $25 donation for each sample and send it to WES. One sample per donation please.
  • 3. Mail your sample(s) to:
    The Wiltshire Education Society
    2565 Lynburn Crescent
    Nanaimo V9S 3T5
    British Columbia

The Wiltshire Education Society will do the rest. Your DNA will be packaged, accompany Stephen to the top of Everest and will be left there in an environmentally sensitive way. A commemorative photo will be taken and a certificate will be e-mailed to you once the mission is completed.
