A Spellbinding Presentation
We are so inspired by your dedicated commitment and success in achieving world recognition as the only woman, age 60, to reach the summit of the highest mountain in each of the seven continents in the world, capped by the ascension of the summit of Mt. Everest this last May.
Your fantastic power point presentation of your overcoming the challenges and rigors of the altitude and weather and the physical preparation of a senior climber to grt to the various base camps to the successful climbing to the summit of Mt Everest left us spellbound.
Kay, you are one remarkable woman! Thank you for sharing your intriguing experience with us and good luck in the Ironman next year.

Inspiring Us to Dream Bigger
I want to thank Kay for helping all of us believe we too can do what we set our minds and bodies to do no matter our age. I have received many wonderful comments about her presentation and how she made a difference in so many lives that evening. Many of us will dream bigger dreams and “climb more mountains” than we ever thought we could. Her energy, amazing spirit, and commitment to excellence was evident.

A Powerful and Touching Story
Thanks to Kay LeClaire for sharing her story at our 2009 Inland Northwest NAWBO (National Association of Women Business Owners) banquet, Live Your Dream. Watching her video and hearing of her prior attempts and successful accomplishment was so powerful. I sat in the audience wondering if she realizes how many people she touches and inspires, simply by living her dream. I look forward to hearing of her future endeavors, wherever her dreams take her. She will continue to be a model for others pursuing theirs.

An Inspiration fror Adventure
The presentation led by Kay at Summit School was an inspiration to students and staff. To hear of her hard work, determination, and perseverance proved to us all that what we set our minds to we can achieve. She did a beautiful job of relating her experience of success and failure as well as the importance of reaching out for help to our 7th and 8th grade students and 3rd and 4th grade students. There was an air of motivation and excitement as students were able to ask questions and look at her photos. She was and is an inspiration for adventure.
