No Limits, No Barriers – Mark Wellman
June 19, 2019 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
The Belvidere Park District is excited to present, From Truckee, California, sharing his message of NO BARRIERS, Mark Wellman a nationally acclaimed author, filmmaker and motivational speaker. Despite being paralyzed in a mountain climbing accident in 1982, Mark has become a source of inspiration to adults young and old. A two-time Paralympian and former Yosemite Park Ranger, Mark’s NO LIMITS philosophy encourages individuals to adventure into new horizons; to go beyond the seemingly unreachable. In 1989, he completed the first historic climb of the 3,200-foot face of El Capitan in Yosemite National Park, using only his arms and will to succeed. In 1996, through bold determination, he carried the flaming paralympic torch ascending a 150-foot rope to light the cauldron at the opening ceremonies in Atlanta. Mark’s message of overcoming adversity and developing self-confidence teaches and inspires.
