WE BROKE DOWN BARRIERS AND TAPPED INTO OUR HIGHEST POTENTIAL!

No Barriers Summit August 25th – 28th 2022

We had an INCREDIBLE weekend celebrating the “Power of We”. It was an amazing experience for everyone and for those who attended in person it was great to reconnect and see the impact this event has on our community. We truly brought the No Barriers rope team together for accessible adventures at YMCA of the Rockies in Estes Park, Colorado! The weekend was full of entertainment, exploration and inspiration – and together, we made a collective impact!

Check out No Barriers Ambassador Melissa Simpson and Co-founder Erik Weihenmayer featured on ABC News Nightline!

The segment shares Melissa’s story and her triumphant climb at the 2022 No Barriers Summit where she and her rope team reached the summit in our What’s Your Everest adaptive hike.

MORIAH (MO) LEUTHAUSER

Program Manager

 

Moriah (Mo) Leuthauser grew up in a small town in Western Colorado. There she spent time outside with her family- skiing, backpacking, climbing and camping. She was introduced to adaptive recreation through an internship with a nonprofit organization that offered recumbent cycling tours from Telluride to Moab for disabled veterans. She was inspired to get involved with adaptive recreation after seeing the joy and healing that she had witnessed it bringing.  She attended Grand Canyon University, where she worked as a guide in the outdoor recreation program and received her Wilderness First Responder certification. Then, she worked at the National Ability Center as an adaptive ski instructor and as an adaptive raft guide for multi day rafting trips. During this time, she earned her PSIA Adaptive Level 1 cert and her Swift Water Rescue Level 4 cert. She now works for No Barriers as the Warriors Program Coordinator, but most enjoys opportunities to be in the field. In her free time, she enjoys mountain biking, rock climbing, skiing, board games and gardening. She hopes for a future where outdoor recreation is more accessible for all people and she plans to devote her career to this cause.
