Barrier-Free Library: ReelAbilities 2013: Wampler's Ascent

Share

March 7, 2013

Program Locations:

Steve Wampler, who has cerebral palsy, needs to do 20,000 pull-ups to climb the famous El Capitan Mountain in Yosemite – only 2-6 inches at a time. His wife and two children cheer him on from below, along with fans who have come to support his important mission. In 2002, Steve founded a camp for kids with disabilities, and his climb will be a testament to the idea that kids with disabilities can do anything they set their minds to.
