One of our Fans on Facebook shared with us the story of Alison Levine, diagnosed with Wolff-Parkinson-White Syndrome at age 17 and Raynaud’s in her early 20’s. Despite these disorders, she become team captain of the first American Women’s Everest Expedition.
She has ascended the highest peaks on every continent and also skied to both the North and South Poles. In 2010 at age 44, she completed the Adventure Grand Slam by reaching the summit of Mt. Everest, having fallen only 200 feet short in her previous attempt in 2002. Today she’s an inspirational speaker, and certainly an inspiration to us Frosties!
Here’s a video with clips from some of her speaking engagements:
