No Limbs Needed for Mountaineer Kyle Maynard

“Every person on the planet has a disability – not just those we can see.  And we all choose whether we allow our lives to be defined by them or not.” ~Kyle Maynard

“I don’t know,” said Kyle Maynard, quadruple amputee, to the question of how he would climb Mount Kilimanjaro, the highest mountain in Africa. He says that these three words, the most important of his life, is when all discoveries happen.

Kyle not only reached the summit of Mount Kilimanjaro, but four years later climbed Mount Aconcagua in Argentina, the highest peak in both the Western and Southern Hemispheres. He successfully reached both mountain peaks without the aid of prosthetics.

Kyle is a bestselling author, motivational speaker and entrepreneur. He won two ESPY (Excellence in Sports Performance Yearly) awards for Best Male Athlete with a Disability. He believes in a life driven by purpose and meaning and the importance of pursuing a dream in spite of enormous obstacles.
