How many of you have seen the Oscar-winning movie Free Solo? It’s a National Geographic documentary about Professional rock climber Alex Honnold as he attempts to conquer the first free solo climb of famed El Capitan’s 3,000ft vertical rock face at Yosemite National Park.

Can you imagine being the mother to an extreme athlete like that? How about taking on that same climb yourself at 66 years old (setting a world record in the process)? Well, you don’t have to imagine. Instead, come meet her and hear her incredible story.

We are thrilled to welcome fellow Parlay House member and author of The Sharp End of Life: A Mother’s Story Dierdre Wolownick, who knows a thing or two about reaching all new heights. She will share her intimate journey and reveal how her climbing achievements reflect a broader story of courage and persistence. And she’ll open up about why, when it comes to reaching any life goal or dream, age is just a number.

We hope you’ll join us as we continue building the foundation for a space in Sacramento where we can get real with people outside our social circles and explore all the conversations we’ve been longing to have.

Sips and snacks will be provided, and we have no doubt that meaningful connections will be sparked!

This event will be hosted by our Sacramento Local Instigator, Emily Nelson.
