BENEFITING: NO BARRIERS Removed
EVENT DATE: Jun 24, 2011
We are so excited for the opportunity to have Erik Weihenmayer, the only blind man to summit Mount Everest, to lead this year's Stretch Expedition with the Prouty Project.
We will be participating in a three-day multi-sport race with three able-bodied and two disabled teammates. Our team will mountainbike, whitewater raft, zip line, climb, and rappel through the mountains and wilderness of the Colorado Rocky Mountains. All this through the blind eyes of Erik, one of the most accomplished athletes in the world.
Are proceeds will be going to off set the cost for those participating and towards No Barriers and the Courage Center.
Erik Weihenmayer's non-profit organization, No Barriers USA, will hold its annual Festival in Winter Park, CO from June 30 - July 3, 2011. This is an amazing event which focuses on "shattering the barriers" through land and water-based activities and fascinating symposiums which defy our notions of what is possible. This festival brings together innovators, technologists, athletes, teachers, professionals, outdoor enthusiasts, and seekers -- people who are "pushing the envelope" in their chosen fields.
