Krumm Lecture Series: Spencer West
No Can’t, No Won’t, Only How: Overcoming Obstacles to Make a Difference
Wednesday, November 18, 2015 | 7:00 pm Strafford Room | Memorial Union Building | University of New Hampshire, Durham

After losing his legs from the pelvis down when he was a child, Spencer West learned that by connecting with others and working to make the world a better place, he could transform his life. Alternating between walking on his hands and using his wheelchair, Spencer has built schools in Kenya and India, walked 186 miles from Edmonton to Calgary in Canada, and climbed Mt. Kilimanjaro to raise money and awareness for a clean water initiative. This event is presented in partnership with the MUB Lecture Series, Health Services, Residential Life, and the President’s Commission on the Status of People with Disabilities.
