Disabilities In The Media: Teen with Down syndrome sets record on Mt. Everest

It's true what they say -- there really ain't no mountain high enough to stop Eli Reimer. After 10 days, 17,000 feet and 70 miles, the 15-year-old from Oregon became the first person with Down syndrome to reach Mt. Everest's base camp. "It was humbling, it was inspiring, just an amazing moment," said Eli's father Justin, who joined his son on the record-setting climb. "Eli's life and the lives of those with disability have infinite worth and they can do great things."
Isn't that inspiring, friends? Way to go, Eli... xoxo
