John Lacroix is a Thirty year old endurance athlete from Boulder, CO. Known worldwide as "Sherpa John," he started his endurance career as a peak-bagger in New Hampshire's rugged White Mountains. In 2004 John completed hiking New Hampshire's list of 48 Four-Thousand Foot peaks entering himself into the Appalachian Mountain Clubs Four-Thousand Footer Club. During the same time, Sherpa John released a documentary film he wrote, edited and produced titled "48: A White Mountain Documentary Film." He sold and donated over 800 DVD copies of his film to various individuals and organizations; all the while raising over $20,000 for the American Diabetes Association Research Foundation. In March of 2006, John completed hiking the same list of mountains during the winter season, becoming one of only a few hundred to do so. His peak-bagging continues as Sherpa has completed the list of 48 peaks a subsequent five additional times and is two peaks away from becoming the youngest person to ever complete The Trailwrights 72 Peak-bagging list.
