Zach Anner is a comedian and an adrenaline junky. He also happens to have cerebral palsy, but that hasn’t stopped him from living an exciting life.
The man from Austin, Texas has done everything from bungee jumping to zip-lining. More recently, he went “volcano surfing” thanks to a little help from his friends.
As a means of raising awareness for UCP Wheels For Humanity, a nonprofit organization that delivers wheelchairs to the poor, Anner traveled to Nicaragua.
Over the course of an hour, Anner’s loyal friends took turns carrying him on their backs as they hiked up the side of the Cerro Negro volcano. Then, in three “magical” minutes, they all slid back down on a wooden boards.
Anner not only hopes that his stunt raises money and awareness for charity, he hopes it will inspire other people with disabilities.
“These are the kinds of things that Zach does. He really pushes his limits,” said Ron Cohen, CEO of UCP Wheels for Humanity. “He creates awareness about what people with disabilities are capable of doing.”
“You really can’t talk about Zach with a disability because he does things that people without disabilities would be too afraid to try,” he added. “I wouldn’t do half the things that he does.”
