Spotlight Speaker Series: Reaching the Summit
December 2, 2020 at 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Join via Zoom as the co-founders Kevin Cherilla and Kristen Sandquist of K2 Adventures describe the mountain expeditions they have led summitting the highest peaks across the globe and the impact their foundation has had serving youth locally and around the world.
Meet the Speakers:
Kevin Cherilla, Co-Founder and Owner has been an international mountaineer for over 20 years. Conquering the summit of Mt. Everest in 2007 was his greatest personal accomplishment. Since then, he has made it his personal goal to change lives one adventure at a time—whether by scaling Everest, Kilimanjaro, Machu Picchu or Aconcagua. Kevin’s passion for climbing and helping others has even been passed on to individuals who are blind, paralyzed and have lost limbs.
Kristen Sandquist, Co-Founder and Owner is an international mountain guide and was on the team that helped eight blind people up Mt. Kilimanjaro. The entire team made the summit and broke four world records, but the trip was historic for another reason. After visiting a local orphanage —she and Kevin made the decision to co-found K2 Adventures Foundation.
