Helping Restore Ability presents Hand In Hand Luncheon
Aron Ralston will be the Speaker for Helping Restore Ability’s 2016 Hand in Hand Luncheon.
In 2003, Ralston’s extraordinary human drama grabbed headlines around the world. An experienced climber and avid outdoorsman, Ralston was descending a remote Utah canyon alone when an 800-pound boulder broke loose, crushing his right hand and pinning him against the canyon wall. After nearly five days - without water and with no hope of escape - Ralston made a life-or-death decision. He chose life by severing his arm below the elbow, rappelling a 65-foot cliff out of the canyon, and trekking seven miles to find his would-be rescuers.
