ID's Integro builds website for Climbing Blind Tibet expedition
ID’s Integro was a proud sponsor of “Climbing Blind: Tibet Expedition” in 2004. Climbing Blind was created by Erik Weihenmayer, the first blind person to summit Mt. Everest. On the expedition, he led a group of blind Tibetan teenagers to the summit of a 23,100 foot peak on the north side of Mt. Everest. Climbing Blind, a non-profit organization, was created to overcome the misconceptions of the blind and to not place limitations on people with disabilities. Integro sponsored the expedition by developing 2 critical technology components – an interactive website and an easy-to-use web content management tool. The web site, had interactive elements to highlight each aspect of the expedition including an online forum for communication between the climbers and those who joined the online community.
