BeWild 2017 Speaker Series: Leif & Jim Whittaker

Join us and The Mountaineers on January 24 to kick off the 2017 BeWild Speaker Series as author Leif Whittaker and his father Jim Whittaker take the stage! Jim stepped into history on May 1, 1963 when he became the first American to summit Mt. Everest. Nearly five decades later, his son Leif followed in his footsteps to the top of the world - twice. Both father and son are accomplished authors and compelling, inspirational speakers, exploring themes of adventure, risk, perseverance, teamwork, friendship, and the beauty of the natural world. To make all of that even more exciting, we'll be there serving up Fremont's finest! Tickets here.
