Jordon Milroy

Jordon is not a typical, run-of-the-mill 23 year old. While many of his peers are still very much finding their place in the world, Jordon is busy changing his! He has this energy about him that is infectious and a keen sense of humour that allows him to see the positive in every situation. It’s his attitude to life that he’s desperate to share with other young, and not so young, people living with disabilities. It’s fair to say that Jordon’s Sky Tower climb in 2012 changed his life. Not only was the 1029 step climb a massive achievement, but it also helped to spark a fire that has given Jordon a new direction for his personal development – by climbing some of the world’s largest structures.  In early 2013 Jordon had been selected as a Top 10 Semi-Finalist for Young New Zealander of the Year.
