Most parents of children with Autism will go to any heights to help them reach their full potential. Farzin Fallah will be doing that literally when he sets out to climb Cho-Oyu, the world’s sixth highest mountain located on the border of Nepal and Tibet on August 30.
Farzin is the father of a teen who has been participating in our theatre workshops for about two years. An avid climber and mountaineer, Farzin is combining his dedication to helping his son with Asperger’s with his love for climbing in a fundraising project that he started called Climbing for Autism.
Funds raised will support programs that serve those with autism in our area. All funds will go to the National Foundation for Autism (NFAR) and then be distributed to local non-profits. PACT will receive 10% of all funds raised on this climb.
You can donate to the project through the National Foundation for Autism. Check out the Climbing for Autism website to learn more about the project. Your can also read Farzin’s blog posts on our site to learn how he has been preparing for this extraordinary challenge.
