A teenager’s historic journey is inspiring others and raising money for a cause close to his heart.
Eli Reimer, 15, is the first person with Down syndrome to climb to the base camp of Mount Everest.
Eli and his dad made the climb to raise money and awareness for children with disabilities via The Elisha Foundation.
Dad said when everyone else was dragging, Eli led the way, keeping their spirits up all the way to base camp.
The milestone came just before World Down Syndrome Day, which was Thursday.
Eli and his dad are now safely back in the states.
