Dawn Parkot’s story of overcoming numerous life challenges has captivated and inspired audiences around the world.

She has lectured at Georgetown University, the University of Notre Dame, Carnegie Mellon University, Vanderbilt University the School of Medicine and Vanderbilt University (the undergraduates).
To motivate people to get passionate about their lives and pursue their dreams, no matter what their challenges are. To create a world that is educated about disabled life and where those with disabilities, particularly those who are extremely disabled, can have a full, successful, joyful, and meaningful life.

While many people believe that facilities for the disabled offer intensive therapies, education, and the skills to function in the
real world, that belief is far from the truth. For many people with disabilities, they often end up warehoused and only receive the
most basic of care.
As it relates to healthcare in the US, the objective of disability policies should be to ensure that people with disabilities have
access to the high-quality services they need without compromising the ability to live independently and productively.
Unfortunately, people with disabilities are often unable to obtain affordable healthcare coverage, are deterred from obtaining
gainful employment, and left vulnerable to financial catastrophe. This is not only a disservice to those with a disability, but to
society as a whole.
The Climb Organization strives to create policy change for anyone living with a disability.
