Out of Thin Air: A Himalayan Life Event

After six gruelling days covering over 600km with a total elevation gain of 26,000ft, Himalayan Life CEO and Founder, Daniel Burgi and five friends, completed Altitude: the Ride for Himalayan Life: a challenging high-altitude cycle over Khardung La Pass and Chang La Pass – two of the world’s highest mountain passes. 

This challenging ride was not to check off an item from a personal bucket list but to raise awareness for children’s education in Nepal and India. Through navigating the challenging mountain roads, the extreme altitude, and thin air, the team was able to, in a small way, touch on the reality of the lives of the families and children we serve.

Please join us to watch the Altitude Ride Film Premiere at our Out of Thin Air Fundraising event.  Here you will see firsthand how gruelling and emotional the ride was for Daniel and his team and learn more about how Himalayan Life is helping children and families in this challenging landscape where the air is so thin.
