When we started the North American journey from Alaska, we reached Anchorage quietly. We didn't know anyone.
We then received a surprise welcome upon returning from Mt Denali at Talkeetna! International Karate Referee Saroj Bhattarai with his family decked in Nepali attire holding glorious Nepali flag arrived all the way from North Pole, Alaska to welcome the team. The family donated NPR 50,001/-. By the time we returned to Anchorage we had a huge big family showering us with much love, respect and support. Nepali Samaj Alaska and Namaste Shangrila Restaurant made a donation of USD 500 and USD 335 respectively.
In Toronto, Canada, we addressed over 15000 audience at Air Canada Centre at the 97th Lions Clubs International Convention.

Here we met Rosanne O'Hara who calls herself our biggest fan. She donated USD 1000 as 'funny money' for the team. She said, 'I had great time in Nepal because of the people. I want to gift you this so that you can have great time in the US doing fun things.'
