10 days, 17,000 feet and 70 miles later-- 15-year-old Eli Reimer made history. The Oregon teen was the first person with Down syndrome to reach the Nepal base camp of Mt. Everest, the world's tallest mountain.
With his dad Justin by his side, Eli made a climb that proves disability is not a limitation. Justin Reimer says watching his son reach base camp a "humbling, inspiring amazing moment. The pair never thought they would even attempt such a big undertaking, but when Justin was approached by a friend, he thought it would be an opportunity to raise money for his organization, The Elisha Foundation. Now, he says the trip has served as much more than a fundraiser.
Susan talked to Justin and Eli about their inspirational climb and the message they want to share with the world.
