El Capitan

This slab of rock is El Capitan. For those of you who haven’t heard of El Cap, it’s a 7,500-foot sheer cliff in Yosemite National Park.

My friend Steve Wampler, who is wheelchair-bound with cerebral palsy, made it to the top. When he’s not accomplishing the impossible, he runs a non-profit wheelchair camp for disabled children in the wilderness near Lake Tahoe, CA.

Steve Wampler

Steve is a stellar example of courage and perseverance. In my book, a Certified Badass. I wanted to share this because it puts stroke-related disabilities into perspective. If you are confined to a wheelchair, stuck with a walker or a cane, or have lost the use of a limb or two, Steve is living proof that a productive and meaningful life is still possible.
