SATURDAY, AUG. 24, ARAPAHOE BASIN SKI AREA
Rope up with No Barriers this summer to challenge yourself and help change lives!
What’s Your Everest is our annual fundraiser where you can connect with the No Barriers community and remind yourself that What’s Within You Is Stronger Than What’s In Your Way. Climb a mountain with renowned blind adventurer & No Barriers co-founder Erik Weihenmayer for the most unique hike experience you’ll ever have!
Each participant is asked to raise a minimum of $250. Every dollar raised by you, your family, or your team will directly impact the lives of veterans, people with diverse abilities, youth and family facing challenges, and many others as they strive to live a life of meaning. Be a part of the No Barriers Rope Team as we join together to ensure everyone, regardless of ability, is able to “climb on.” We encourage you to reach beyond the minimum and invite others to be part of your team.

“As I witnessed courage and transformation happening all around me, it allowed me to access and be present with a part of myself I thought no longer existed… I can honestly say I feel forever changed.”No Barriers Summit Participant
