In March of 2013, I joined a team of 9 travelers to trek to Everest Base Camp in Nepal. The goal of our trek was to raise awareness about disabilities and highlight the work of The Elisha Foundation which provides support to families touched by disabilities.
Justin Reimer accompanied his intrepid 15 year old son, Eli, who has Down Syndrome. The terrain was rough, and the altitudes were extreme, but Eli kept going, leading the team with his positive attitude and mega-watt smile.
The in-country logistics for the trip were comprehensively handled by Himalayan Glacier Trekking, Ltd. Our guides were knowledgeable, compassionate, and delightful.
