John’s Climb

Meet John Janowicz; a young man with an optimistic, kind and passionate character.  John lives with Lesch-Nyhan syndrome, a condition confining him to a wheel chair with restricted use of his limbs, a condition that appears to limit the opportunity to climb a tree.  But thanks to a timely meeting with young arborist DJ Neustaeter (with Arboriculture Canada) and John’s motivation, belief and perseverance, an opportunity was born.

With the full support of the Janowicz family, an experienced team of arborists redefined the tree climbing experience and facilitated John’s Climb 100 foot into a Douglas Fir at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver.  We are humbled by John and his family and are proud to have supported him in this experience.  From the spark which initiated the vision to the culmination of success, John’s Climb transformed the lives of everyone involved.   View the short trailer below, and see the full documentary here:
