Freeland man reaches Adams’ summit

Chris Kesler, a Freeland resident, recently reached the summit of Mount Adams.

He reached the top of the 12,280-foot mountain in southwest Washington. The venture was part of the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center’s Climb to Fight Breast Cancer. All the climbers who participate raise money from the trek that is donated to the laboratory. Kesler, 47, went with his work group Lydig Construction, and was a late addition to the preparation. The work team raised more than $110,000.
