FOND DU LAC, Wis. (WFRV) - A Fond du Lac man is looking for your support as he climbs the world's tallest mountain.

Andy Land, 52, has announced his plan to be the fifth person from Wisconsin to climb to the top of Mount Everest.

His climb will kick off a fundraiser supporting "Climbing for Hospice," a non-profit that supports hospices across the state.

He will start his climb mid-may of next year.
