The first Reach our Peak Event “Everest &The Seven Summits ”led by Michael Davis, educates and motivates youth by sharing his experience, and his use of the D.R.E.A.M. curriculum to climb Mt.Everest, as he concludes his goal of climbing the Seven Summits.

Michael, a former Hollywood agent whose first night in a tent and hike was just a year prior, spent 2 years preparing and attempting the Seven Summits, the highest peak on each of the seven continents. In each of the six mountains he ’s attempted so far, he has successfully reached the summit on his first attempt:

What does REACH YOUR PEAK mean to me?

        

To pursue your dreams,to lead with your heart, to listen to that voice inside yourself that wants to fly, take a chance, a risk, to dare to be different, follow your own lead, to help others, to help yourself, to make a difference in the world.


Why I climb...

"For me mountain climbing is the struggle of man against himself. The fight to withstand prolonged exposure to the often-harsh elements of Mother Nature. The ability to leave behind the creature comforts of civilization and keep moving even when every cell in your body screams for you to stop. The opportunity to see the world in all its glory, just the way god created it. The understanding to know you can survive, to know what you're capable of, and to take this journey in concert with others, all facing the same tests, each there for their own reasons. There has never been a time in my life, that I have felt more awake or more alive..."

-Michael Davis
