CLIMB WALK DIVE – The true story of a young philanthropist, who is blind, teaches children that through kindness and determination anything is possible! Climb Walk Dive: The Adventures of Rowan Garel was launched on Wednesday, June 1, 2016, at the Image Factory in Belize City.
The 32-page illustrated children’s book tells the story of Rowan’s high-adrenaline undertakings to raise funds for Belize Council for the Visually Impaired (BCVI) to provide services and support for children who are blind. To the summit of Victoria PeakAcross the country of Belize and Down into the Blue Hole, Rowan surpassed his personal and charitable goals each time.
Written by Katie Usher and Gia Martinez and Illustrated by Marvin Vernon, Climb Walk Dive is the brainchild of Image Factory Foundation’s Yasser Musa who felt it imperative to tell Rowan’s incredible story.
“This children’s book was developed because the action of Rowan Garel sparks our imagination and fills our hearts with the enduring power and fire of the human spirit. It is a story about family, tenacity and hope. It is a great Belizean narrative,” Musa said.
Climb Walk Dive: The Adventures of Rowan Garel is available for purchase for $15.00 with all proceeds going toward Rehabilitation and Education services for Belizeans who are blind or visually impaired.
