Vision 8 000

While climbing all of the world’s 14 peaks that stand above 8 000 m, I aim to break down the stigma associated with traumatic brain injury, vision loss, and eating disorders. Through challenging mountain experiences, I will shine light on the power of perspective and possibility.

As evident in this video , being a visually impaired adventure athlete with unique content and the inspiration that is Vision 8000, contagious energy is fabricated into my story which I would appreciate you becoming part of.

The 14 expeditions each require specific gear and approximately 30 000 USD to unfold safely and successfully. Your contributions will help make the chapters of Vision 8 000 complete.

In addition to any financial support, partnering could look like:
  • One time contribution
  • Exclusively supporting one or more of the 8 000 m climbs
  • Contributions per climb
  • Gear support
  • Logistical partner (e.g. transportation, insurance, etc.)

As a partner, I welcome the opportunity to connect with companies, organizations and groups to share my story in person or virtually to inspire your team, promote your values on my website, Mountains of my Mind , social media avenues , publishing and speaking on your behalf.

With appreciation and anticipation of having you become part of the fabric of my story and a key player in Vision 8000.
