Everest Hip Hop - Tuesday March 27, 2012

As he eased into retirement at the age of 61, Don Healy finally started to exercise and six months later (March 2007) was in good enough shape to take up a life-long dream to climb high mountains. His dream came true on May 24, 2010 when he reached the summit of Mt. Everest, just six days after celebrating his 65th birthday at Camp 2.

His “Everest Hip Hop” lecture documents his four year journey from “couch potato” to the highest point on earth – with a total hip replacement along the way (the result of a bicycle accident – not climbing!). The presentation includes stunning photos of his climbs as well as interesting facts about Everest and mountaineering in general.
