2019 What’s Your Everest

Rope up with No Barriers this summer to challenge yourself and help change a life!

What’s Your Everest is our annual mountain climb fundraiser where you can hike alongside friends, family and co-workers. It’s a chance to experience the No Barriers mission first hand, connect with the No Barriers community and remind yourself that What’s Within You Is Stronger Than What’s In Your Way!

Join us for a hike unlike any other – full of purpose, fun and inspiration for all! What’s Your Everest builds community for people of all abilities and raises money for the life-changing work of No Barriers.

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.
