MOUNTAINEERING -- The filming crew in Nepal with the 2015 Annapurna expedition, which includes Spokane's Jess Roskelley, has produced a short video (below) that shows the team at the time of the April 25 earthquake that rocked a nation and changed their mission.

Says expedition leader Don Bowie of Ontario:

A month ago we set out on an expedition to Anapurna to film the groundbreaking series Edge of Endeavor. On April 25, all that changed. Our mission now is to bring emergency relief to the people of Nepal. Here is the first of many videos we hope to share with you so you can see your generous donations at work, helping your fellow man in their time of need. There are still many more that need us.

Please help us spread the word. http://www.morethansport.org/partner/nepalrelief
