Tuesday, March 21, 2017 - 6:00pm

No Barriers. That has been the motto of Erik Weihenmayer’s life. It’s what led him to be the only blind person in history to climb Mt. Everest and, most recently, to descend the Grand Canyon in a solo kayak. Erik’s life is dotted with details of the extraordinary type highlighted not  by his blindness but by the light that burns in all of us, the obstacles that threaten to extinguish that light, and the treacherous ascent towards growth and rebirth.

Join us to hear Weihenmeyer will tell his captivating story since Everest: from leading expeditions around the world with blind Tibetan teenagers to helping injured soldiers climb their way home from war, adopting a son from Nepal and finally his solo kayak down the Grand Canyon.
