Survivors of the mountain challenge

Christopher Parr, public affairs specialist, presents a Mount Everest Challenge tee shirt recognizing a successful simulated climb to the peak. The base wide challenge sponsored by the 375th Health Promotions Office, encouraged military and civilians to form teams that would work out and add their points collectively to equal 30,000 feet in four weeks. The 932nd Rock Jocks as they were known, compiled over 68,230 feet. Acting as the guide or sherpa, Parr said, It helped build a stronger relationship with members of my wing staff that were my team members. It was exciting to watch a person on the team (Col. Sean Pierce, Operations Group Commander) training for an Ironman competition and earning 31,000 feet by himself alone, added Parr. (U.S. Air photo by Maj. Stan Paregien)
