This Week's Guest
Just when you thought something was completely impossible, along comes the story of Erik Weinhenmayer. Born with a disease that causes eventual blindness, Erik made it to age 15 before he became completely sightless. Living in total darkness, he became a wrestling coach and a middle school teacher. He then took up rock climbing. And completely redefined what is possible for a blind person. In 2001, incredibly, Erik became the first blind person to reach the summit of Mount Everest. He went on to complete the Seven Summits, the highest peaks on all seven continents. He has written three books and has been featured in three films. Today Erik is a highly sought after motivational speaker. Come with Erik as he expertly tells his mind boggling story. You will be better for it!
