The Ultimate Inhibitor Adventure


Another year of Leverage is in the books! The 2019 Adventure brought together folks with inhibitors from across the country to build community and dismantle stigma by challenging themselves physically and emotionally. On the docket this year was adaptive high ropes challenge course and rock wall climbing, as well as creative cooking and a state of the art medical discussion and workshop.

A new activity for GutMonkey, Joe shared a didgeridoo building and playing workshop throughout the week. Didgeridoo is the oldest wind instrument in the world and helms from Northeastern Australia. Each Leverage participant selected bamboo or PVC pipe to adorn with specially selected images and symbols. Using hot coals, rebar, and beeswax, they transformed the simple tools into beautiful art pieces and instruments.

Of course, we ventured out onto the Columbia River for the annual salmon fishing trip, this time capped off with a trip to epic Multnomah Falls, the centerpiece of the Columbia River Gorge.

We’re playing around with new ways of involving folks who can’t make it to Leverage. Check back for this year’s immersive 360 virtual reality recap of the program. Move your viewing device around to see different views!
