On May 25, 2001, Erik Weihenmayer became the only blind person to reach the summit of Mt. Everest. In 2008 he climbed Carstensz Pyramid on the island of Papua New Guinea, completing the Seven Summits, the highest point on every continent. Even as retinoschisis began to rob him of his vision by the age of 13, Erik resisted the idea that blindness would sweep him to the sidelines of life. After graduating a double major from Boston College, Erik became a middle-school teacher and wrestling coach at Phoenix Country Day School. Yet it was atop the highest point in North America, the mountain known in the native Inuit language as Denali, where his quest for adventure began to take shape. Erik’s triumphs over some of the world’s most formidable mountains were fueling a growing aspiration to take the lessons he learned in the mountains to help others shatter barriers in their lives.
Throughout the years, Kristen has been involved with a variety of non-profit organizations, starting one when she was just 23 years old. But seeing the great poverty among those who were disabled in the U.S. and in third-world countries was so distressing that she felt compelled to do something about it.
Her vision was realized in March 2009, when she was asked to be one of the guides on mountaineer Kevin Cherilla’s climb to lead eight blind individuals up Mt. Kilimanjaro. The group made the summit and broke four world records, but the trip was historic for another reason, as well—she and Kevin made the decision to co-found K2 Adventures Foundation.
