Please join us for this summer's Outdoor Retailer Conservation Alliance breakfast! We are pleased to welcome Aaron Ralston as our guest speaker this year!
Aron Ralston is an adventurer who inadvertently gained fame when he hiked into a remote area of Utah's canyon country, and accidentally dislodged a boulder that crushed and pinned his right hand. After six days of entrapment alone, he amputated his arm with a cheap multi-tool knife and hiked to a miraculous rescue.
Aron's account of his experience, Between a Rock and a Hard Place, was adapted into 127 Hours, a motion picture starring James Franco. With new prosthetic arms that he designed, Aron finished solo winter ascents of Colorado's 59 Fourteeners, skied from the summit of Denali, and led a raft trip through the Grand Canyon. Aron is a strong advocate for wilderness protection, donating his time to organizations working to protect the landscapes that he knows well.
The Conservation Alliance Breakfast is free and open to the public, so bring a friend! Arrive tired, leave inspired!
