On June 3 I will be attempting to climb Mt. Elbert, the tallest peak in Colorado! I am hiking this mountain as apart of a fundraising event for No Barriers. As you may or may not know, I have spent the past 9 months interning with a company called Global Explorers. Early this year Global Explorers merged with an organization called No Barriers. No Barriers encourages all humans to realize their full potential; that what's within you is stronger than what's in your way.
I will be attempting this climb alongside Erik Weihenmayer, the only blind man to reach the Seven Summits (and the first blind man to summit Everest), and many, many other members of the No Barriers community, including wounded soldiers from No Barriers' 2012 Soldiers to Summits program.
I am hoping to raise $500 by May 30. All donations directly support No Barriers programming (including Global Explorers). Anything you can donate would be greatly appreciated and extremely helpful! Thank you all so much for your support :)
