This conference isn’t just good for business, it’s good for charity. Nextiva’s passion for supporting our local community led to the founding of Nextiva Cares, our charitable arm. It’s also why we made NextCon a not-for-profit conference, and why donating to a charity every year is a priority for us.
In the eyes of K2 Adventures, “There are no disabilities, only possibilities.” This amazing organization is dedicated to serving individuals with life challenges and special needs around the globe with services, support and adaptive equipment that insurance companies often deem “luxury” items. K2 Adventures programs allow participants to live their lives far beyond expectations.
Using adaptive equipment from K2, Kyle Maynard became the first quadruple amputee to reach the summit of Mount Kilimanjaro. His 10-day ascent raised money and awareness for wounded veterans as well as Tanzanian school children. Upon his return, Kyle won his second ESPY Award for Best Male Athlete with a Disability.
During NextCon 2019, every time an attendee used #NextCon19 on social media, we made a $10 donation to K2 Adventures Foundation. This year’s conference raised a whopping $21,160 for ‘K2 at the Batcave’, which was generously matched at their annual Masquerade Ball! Thank you to everyone who participated so we could help empower those with special needs to live their best lives.
