Above all else: The Everest dream

April 29, 2009

Canadian, Jamie Clarke, subject of two National Geographic documentaries, will relate his adventures.

Thursday, April 30, 7 p.m.
Lory Student Student, Room 214-216

CSU's Campus Recreation and Outdoor Adventure Program brings international mountaineer and adventurer Jamie Clarke to CSU to discuss his adventures, the value of passionately living an active life and the preparations for his fourth climb of Mount Everest in 2010.

This event is free and open to the public!

Clarke's motto is, "It's not about where you've been. It's about where you're headed." Clarke, 41, of Calgary, Alberta, has been taking part in expeditions for more than 20 years, covering the world’s highest peaks on all seven continents to the Empty Quarter in Saudi Arabia, one of the most desolate deserts in the world.

He has authored two books and has been featured in two National Geographic documentaries based on his adventures.
