Please join me in supporting Jimbo and the promise he made to his daughter to participate in the 2019 Sunrise Ascent. Jimbo has a quest for life and has beaten the odds, given 6-12 months to live on 3/12/18. Here we are, more than a year later - let's help get Jimbo to the summit of Mount Washington on 8/4/2019!!
My journey with ASPNC began in 2011 and my personal quest is to continue to touch lives as I share my passion for the outdoors as a volunteer working with our participants. I grew up with my Dad confined to a wheelchair unable to walk from the age of 16 when he was struck with polio. Dad was an inspiration as he never let his handicap prevent him from getting out and being active. At the age of 69, Dad was the victim of a stroke which left him with speech aphasia. Our family rallied and together learned how to augment our communication skills. My Mom, married into the role of caregiver and although soft-spoken was the rock of our family. My parents taught us that a handicap is simply a challenge to work creatively to overcome rather than a hindrance. I support Jimbo as a tribute to my Mom and Dad.
Thank you for your support!!
