Trek4TEF was founded by Kevin Padgett in 2011 as a means of introducing people with disabilities of all types to the outdoors, to create awareness about disability, and to support The Elisha Foundation (TEF) and their global work among the disabled.Visit Website
The mission of The Elisha Foundation (TEF) is to transform the lives of people impacted by disability through providing needed spiritual and physical resources.
WHY WE DO THE TREKS
We trek to create awareness of the often severe needs of those impacted by disability and show the unique abilities of our disabled team members as they climb these mountain trails, just as they navigate the sometimes treacherous paths of their own disability. Trek4TEF also serves to make the work of The Elisha Foundation (TEF) known and supported. Each year Trek4TEF holds an annual fundraising event to raise funds for the critical work of TEF.
Our vision is to utilize our Respite, Retreat, and Reach programs to fulfill our Mission through empowering people, to engage the disabled in their communities, and to provide needed resources to those experiencing disability.
