Liz Sass' first skydive was in June 1999. Since then, she has jumped from a plane over 12,000 times–that's more than twice a day, every single day! She's also a six-time record-holder, canopy flyer, and outdoor enthusiast.

KuImage titlental Joisher is the first vegan to have ever summited Mt. Everest. Devastating natural disasters struck his expeditions in 2014 (an avalanche at Everest Basecamp) and 2015 (the Gorka earthquake), but in 2016 Kuntal returned to Nepal, determined to make it to the top. He continues to climb regularly and is spending this spring leading treks to Everest Base Camp.  

This event benefits Sunsar Maya, an organization that provides academic, medical, and emotional support to orphaned and disadvantaged children in Nepal.
