A Conversation with Steve Baskis

Steve Baskis is an inspirational blind veteran and adventurer. Eight months into his army deployment Steve was severely wounded by a roadside bomb and was blind. During his rehabilitation he learned to maneuver and function while blind. As an admitted “adrenaline junkie,” Baskis was eager to participate in sports that would get him back in shape. Baskis rebounded by climbing the third highest volcano in Mexico. Baskis reached the summit on Veterans Day and has conquered other notable climbs including Kilimanjaro. Baskis discusses how he wants to start an organization that will allow other disabled individuals a chance to enjoy what they never thought possible. Steve Baskis continues to inspire by motivating others to find that internal drive to move forward with a philosophy of “Never dwell on the negative, drive forward as fast and as hard as you can. If you are capable of that, there is nothing that will hold you back.”
