I know on its face, this post looks like it doesn't belong on this board. But 5 years ago (Aug 25, 2007 to be exact), Photonic asked a question about what gear to bring on a climb of Mt. Kilimanjaro. He included this explanation:
I am making this climb with my 13-year old son as a coming of age adventure. He was born with one leg so this is going to be a great challenge. He has turned this rite of passage into a fund raising event and has already raised $20,000 which will be used to provide free wheelchairs to the disabled of Tanzania. If you would like to learn more about our adventure follow this Link to Kilimanjaro Climb [now broken] and click on the various links to media coverage and my son's letter to the Free Wheelchair Mission. We leave this afternoon and I will post some shots (hopefully) from the Roof of Africa when we return in 2 weeks.
Fast forward to now. Many of you have probably seen this video of a HS soccer player with one leg scoring a goal. Over 1 million YouTube hits, and an ESPN highlight:
