An official with an Alaska Native corporation has set his eyes on a big prize.
Ty Hardt, the communications director for the Arctic Slope Regional Corp., has announced he will attempt to climb Mount Everest in March.
He's doing this is a fundraiser for the Boys and Girls Clubs of Alaska.
The corporation says in a release that the club has a chapter in Barrow with more than 130 members. Boys and girls across the state are expected to follow Hardt's attempt to climb Mount Everest.
