Today's inspirational-motivational story is this guy named Spencer West, who lost his legs to a genetic disorder when he was 5. But that hasn't stopped him from living life on the edge:
Back in April, Spencer decided he would scale Mount Kilimanjaro to raise $500,000 for charity. According to the BBC, he accomplished almost all 20,000 steps using nothing but his hands and sheer will power. Check out Spencer's own personal account from his blog:

We looked around — me, David and Alex — and realized that, after seven grueling days of relentless climbing, after 20,000 feet of our blood, sweat and tears (and, let’s face it, vomit) we had actually made it. We were at the top. The summit sign seemed almost like a mirage.
Then it sunk in. We made it. To the top of the mountain. The mountain that I promised to the world I would climb. The bleeding fingers and blisters were all worth it. I looked at the guys, my two buddies who dreamed up this crazy plan with me, and realized we actually finished what we started.
