Outward Bound invites you to the top of the world with mountaineer Luis Benitez
IF YOU have ever felt discouraged from pursuing a dream because of perceived limitations, then hearing how one legendary mountaineer climbs the world’s tallest mountains, despite a lifelong battle with asthma, might inspire you to believe anything is possible.
In that spirit, my colleagues over at Outward Bound Bay Area hope you will join Outward Bound supporters, partners and the local climbing community for a special free event, thanks to the generosity of local sponsors.
In a special visit to the Bay Area, mountain guide and Outward Bound instructor Luis Benitez will share stories of his climbs to some of the highest peaks in the world. The six-time Mount Everest summiter will also show images from his ascents, including his 2001 Everest summit with blind athlete Erik Weihenmayer.
Friday May 20th, 2011
7pm – 8:30pm at Planet Granite San Francisco
$10 suggested donation to support the Outward Bound Bay Area scholarships for local students.
Event-goers will be entered into a raffle to win prizes from the event’s sponsors: Marmot, Sports Basement, Spencer & Daniel’s wine & spirits and Planet Granite.
