Despite his challenges, Kyle has become a world-renowned athlete. While training for one of the greatest challenges of his life, Kyle met the mother of Corey Johnson, a man who always wanted to climb Mt. Kilimanjaro. Corey was a private in the U.S. Army and died serving his country in Afghanistan. Kyle made a promise to Corey’s mother that he would bearcrawl up Mt. Kilimanjaro and spread Corey’s ashes.
