Tom Klint of Premier Disability Services climbs Mt. KilimanjaroPosted June 29, 2016 by Premier Disability Services, LLC®
Our founder Thomas Klint has always been a man of setting high goals and challenging himself. Starting and running one of the nation’s greatest disability advocacy groups was one of many obstacles he’s completed. But recently he set out on a journey to test his determination yet again, help even more people and connect with his family. To accomplish this, he set out to scale the summit of Mount Kilimanjaro.
Just like climbing mountains, Tom knew that improving yourself can be a long and difficult journey. Always taken step by step. To prepare himself for this journey he completed four months of training beforehand. When he was ready, he set out to climb a dormant volcano that towers over 19,000 feet tall. But with the support of his fellow colleague Robert Higgins and with his son Bobby Klint hiking along his side, Tom was able to overcome the mountain and reached the highest peak in seven days.
Along with strengthening his health and bonding with family, Tom used this opportunity to help others. On his visit, he also visited a local orphanage with Robert. While there, they both donated to the orphanage to help the children.
In the end, Tom did much more than travel from point A to point B or take a simple vacation. He set a new standard for himself and what he can achieve and made life lasting moments with his son. All while continually helping those around him. We are glad to have him back and can’t wait to see how this new boost of motivation will help drive this company forward.
