Dr. Beck Weathers moves audiences with his emotional tale of survival against all odds, encouraging you to appreciate the perseverance of the human spirit and the strength of loved ones to conquer even the most daunting challenges.
It was spring 1996. An accomplished pathologist and amateur climber on an expedition to summit the world’s tallest peak, Dr. Weathers was caught in one of the most devastating storms in Mt. Everest’s history and presumed dead. Fueled by visions of his family, his incredible tale of survival served as the inspiration behind Jon Krakauer’s best-selling book Into Thin Air, and was brought to the silver screen in 2015 in the major motion picture, Everest, starring Josh Brolin as Weathers.
Praised by audiences around the world for his powerfully emotive storytelling, he captivates listeners with his gripping tale of miraculous survival while passing along invaluable lessons he learned from facing death and living to tell about it.
As he takes recounts that fateful day on the mountain, Dr. Weathers expresses an appreciation for second chances that invites audiences to feel gratitude for the most important things in life and to seek hope in the face of insurmountable odds.Survivor of the 1996 Mount Everest Tragedy & Inspiration for the Major Motion Picture, Everest
