Sam and Steve are back from Everest! Come Celebrate With Us!
Event on 2012-07-08 18:00:00
On May 19th, in one of the deadliest years on record, Steve Curtis and Sam Wyatt successfully summited the tallest mountain in the world and made it back alive. Now for the first time in public, they will share the details of their harrowing Journey with friends, family, and the public.
On July 8th, come celebrate and welcome them home! This will be a night to remember – with great food, drinks and sharing at Canvas Lounge in Gastown Vancouver. This event is to raise financial support for at risk youth and to inspire ALL ages, so bring the family! Sam and Steve will share the details of their amazing experience with photos, videos, and on the edge of your seat stories. They will trace their steps from the original dream, through planning and training, to the actual climb and the journey through the death zone and back.
Sam and Steve will share the lessons they learned and the importance of dreams, discipline, planning, and living life in service to others. They will also include excerpts from their video diaries expressing their emotions in real time, including experiencing the death of a fellow climber, walking through bodies to the summit, and what it feels like to be on the top of the world.
Whether you’re a hardcore climber or have never hiked a day in your life, this will be a night not to miss. In their real life ‘Into Thin Air’ story, Steve and Sam will share gripping details of their personal experiences climbing Lobuche and Everest not yet shared in the more than 25 press articles they have been in since their return.

About Adventure 2 Advance, and how you can help
Adventure 2 Advance was launched in 2009 by Vancouver entrepreneur Steve Curtis as a platform to turn treks into marketing and media draws to benefit the Take a Hike Youth at Risk Foundation (TAH), a local charity and adventure learning program for at-risk teens in grades 10 to 12 in an alternative school.
In 2009, Steve flew to Argentina to climb Mount Aconcagua along with Luc Martin and Melissa Cepelinski, and together they were able to raise ,000 for TAH through donations, auction items, and a send-off and welcome-back party.
In 2012, Steve's relentless thirst for adventure took him to Mount Everest. Together with Sam Wyatt, they embarked on a two-month journey that led them to the summit on May 19th and a flurry of media attention, including features on CNN,CTV, Global News, The Province, and a full page in Metro.
Combined, Steve's 2009 and 2012 expeditions have been able to raise ,000 of his 0,000 fundraising goal, which will allow him to help TAH scale and expand into other much-needed communities.
With your support, whether that be through a donation or simply by attending his lively welcome-home party, we can help significantly impact the lives of youth in need.
Hope to see you there!
