More Info

Cheyenne would like to inspire Veterans with disabilities to RISE ABOVE! Ineqsunaq would like to inspire individuals who experience chronic pain and survivors of domestic violence to RISE ABOVE!

Ineqsunaq - I'm a lifelong adventurer, with a long list of adventurous dreams to conquer.  During training for dog sled races, I ended my adventures short when I flew off a cliff with my dog team and sustained multiple injuries to my spine and shoulder.  After multiple surgeries, and a plethora of unsuccessful medical treatments/countless pain relief which spanned more than two decades, I finally accepted that "this was as good as it gets," as I struggled through my day-to-day life.  Adventures were no longer possible for me and I was SO tired of fighting through the pain. Then I moved from bush Alaska to North Carolina and became a patient at Carolina's Pain Institute of Dr. Leonardo Kapural.  After  months of treatment and receiving new technology for both of my Spinal Cord Stimulators - I quickly realized I could once again, rise above and achieve my dreams. #Nevro #Patientstories #ChronicPain

Ineqsunaq is a veteran of the US Army

Hey everyone I'm Cheyenne.  I've lived with chronic knee pain since childhood. I'm a disabled Veteran, having served in the US Army.  While in the military I sustained several injuries which resulted in additional pain to my knees and chronic pain in other areas of my body.  I underwent a number of knee surgeries, as well as various treatments to address the pain. Nothing worked. The VA finally referred me to Carolina's Pain Institute and after a few procedures, the chronic pain in my knees has all but disappeared. This has changed my everyday life and gives me hope for eradicating my pain in other areas of my body.  I have been given back my motivation to conquer my dreams.I want other people to experience their dreams no matter what has held them back. 

The funds will be used for the rental of high altitude training systems, airfare, guide service for the climb in January 2022, required immunizations, visas, personal gear, and lodging. Medical bills will be paid off and any funds remaining will help launch our non-profit. 

We want to reach others like us and inspire them to reclaim and achieve their dreams of adventure!  WE TOO RISE ABOVE!

3 April - we hosted an Easter event for a fundraiser on our farm. There were 3 free egg hunts; 2 for children, 1 for adults. We had bbq sandwiches, chips, baked goods, games, hay rides, paddleboat rides, several games for kids, and we painted one of our horses Afina! We appreciate everyone who came out - which was near 300 people! Thanks so much!
