"Byron, Congratulations on your completion of the ever challenging task and the last jewel of "the seven summits". Your dream for some time and the dream of all serious summiteers.
"I would like to congratulate you on your election to The Board of Directors of The Sir Edmund Hillary Foundation. Your support of the foundation has been outstanding and we look forward to your continuing support and that of Sir Edmund Hillary's dream to "Help the Sherpas improve the living condition of their lives mainly in the areas of Education; health care; and conservation." Namaste
Zeke O'Connor Executive Director and Founder, The Sir Edmund Hillary Foundation.
"Byron's Seven Summit's Achievement
"The Seven Summits takes you to the highest peak on each continent and
requires skill, determination and, even, a little luck - it's a fine
mountaineering adventure. The worst thing about Byron completing his 'seven'is that he has beat me to it. I still have one mountain to go!"
Peter Hillary, Speaker, Explorer, Author, Son of Sir Edmund Hillary.
“Byron has accomplished what few people will ever realize. He has climbed to the summit of the highest mountain on each of the seven continents on this planet. The commitment, focus and determination it takes to execute a project such as this is a true reflection of an individual’s character. It is with great pride I offer my congratulations to Byron.”
Laurie Skreslet, 1st Canadian to Summit Mount Everest, Speaker, Explorer, Author
