Where: Your Hometown!
No Barriers is especially thankful and excited for your interest in the 9th annual What’s Your Everest Fundraiser. COVID-19 has created a difficult and unusual time for us all, but it also serves as a time that we are reminded more than ever that What’s Within You Is Stronger Than What’s In Your Way. As a virtual fundraiser this year, we invite you to embrace a unique opportunity to be both creative and adventurous while participating in your own way! Whether you want to challenge yourself with a new hiking trail, ride your bike an extra mile, or kayak for the first time, we hope that you will be inspired to climb that mountain while also supporting the life changing work of No Barriers.
Virtual Rope Team
We also encourage you to create your own “virtual” Rope Team by inviting family and friends to participate in this year’s What’s Your Everest! It may be helpful to brainstorm fun activities that you can do in your area to challenge yourselves. Get creative! Once the fundraiser has concluded, it might also be fun to share each other’s experiences over a video call, or even send a postcard or letter to help continue to inspire each other! Although it is not the same experience as getting to participate with others in person, this year’s What’s Your Everest provides a meaningful opportunity to expand outreach and support for No Barriers, while challenging yourself in a fun way!
Need Some Inspiration? Check This Out!
At the end of September, Melissa Simpson and her small No Barriers team will be climbing a peak above Leadville, Colorado. Melissa has been training for her climb and will be using her very own Freedom Chair, a wheelchair specifically engineered for all-terrain and adventure! We hope that you will be inspired by Melissa’s climb to donate and participate in this year’s What’s Your Everest Fundraiser.
