Hamtramck teacher to climb mountain for the kids

Hamtramck High School business teacher John Rostek wants to raise money to fund his students' extracurricular activities -- one foot at a time.

He's pledged to climb Alaska's Mount McKinley. At 20,320 feet above sea level, it's America's highest peak. Rostek hopes to raise $1 for every foot he climbs. He'll carry 60 lbs. of gear, drag a sled with 50 lbs. more, and brave average temperatures of -20 degrees Fahrenheit for the cause.
