Sharing an article in the Greeley Tribune

Postby bandofbrothersomaha » Fri Aug 19, 2011 10:57 am

Wanted to share an article in the Greeley Tribune that came out today.

It was way too much about me personally, but Dan England (a 14ers.com member as well) did a great job at telling the story about the experience, about the amazing feat of taking a 14 yr old to the top that has cerebral palsy and about the ministry. We may have seen some of you on Quandary on July 24, 2011!

Thanks for sharing. I was up there when they carried him up and it was an amazing event. The Band of Brothers is a great group. The kid was elated. It brought me to tears. I had my 10 year old son up there then too and he was moved. What an experience.

That's really cool. Good article, I can't wait to see the video (later). What a labor of love carrying someone to the top of a 14er.
