LIMBitless Challenge participants conquer Table Rock

Second annual LIMBitless challenge at Table Rock in Boise.

BOISE - The second annual LIMBitless Challenge took on a new meaning Saturday morning at Table Rock.

Injured Boise Police Corporal Kevin Holtry took the challenge to climb to the top of the Boise landmark.

The LIMBitless Challenge was started to empower wounded veterans and other people living with limb loss and paralysis.

The event raises money to provide individuals with support, education and resources.

Volunteers help them make the ascent.

"When you're in a wheelchair, picture going up this hill. There's areas where the team has to physically pick them up so when they get up there, it's not some easy task. It is a challenge," said Ronald Kern, founder of LIMBitless. "But the accomplishment and the view gives them a little more oomph that, 'hey, you know what, if I can climb Table Rock, what else can I do?'"

Organizers expect the LIMBitless Challenge to continue growing. They say they've even received interest from Texas Gov. Greg Abbott, who is partially paralyzed and uses a wheelchair.
