TORRANCE, Calif.

On September 7th, Fasha Mahjoor, CEO of Phenomenex, global leader in separation science technologies, and Neoteryx, global leader in novel analytical chemistry solutions, will be rappelling/abseiling down three iconic London skyscrapers (totaling 1,916 feet!) to raise money for The Outward Bound Trust, a charitable organization that enables underprivileged youth to realize their potential through outdoor adventure.

Mahjoor and a small group of charitable daredevils will descend from 3 buildings known locally as The Gherkin, The Cheesegrater, and The Walkie-Talkie during the City Three Peaks Challenge to aid the foundation. Mahjoor himself plans to raise a minimum of $156,000/£100,000/€141,000, and has personally donated 1/3 of his goal amount to kick fundraising momentum into high gear.

“Everyone tells me I’ve gone off the deep end…and they’re probably right,” says Mahjoor with a smile, “But as I look down from the top, I’ll think of two things 1) the good cause that has brought me here and 2) please let me make it to the bottom, but not at 275 mph! But truly, it is so important to me to support this wonderful organization that helps so many underprivileged youth, giving them hope, confidence, and a road map to a bright future. Surely it can’t get better than that.”

To sponsor Mahjoor’s descent and support his fundraising efforts, please visit www.mahjoor4charity.com. Donations will help young people from financially disadvantaged backgrounds to attend Outward Bound Trust programs.

Fasha Mahjoor is an architect, businessman, philanthropist, visionary, and founder and CEO of the Phenomenex and Neoteryx.
