The 2nd Annual 5Point Film Festival presents a panel discussion on “Celebrating Our Common Spirit: Turing Desire Into Mission,” featuring a group of people who have taken their passions for outdoor pursuits and turned it into an avenue of helping others. Panelists include pro kayaker Brad Ludden who started First Descents, a camp for young adults with cancer; Mark Godley, the Executive Director of Denver-based Big City Mountaineers; renowned climber Conrad Anker and his wife Jenni Lowe-Anker, founders of the Khumba Climbing School in Nepal.
