Allowing everyone to explore Torres del Paine聽

The goal of the project is to make Torres del Paine in Chile accessible to wheelchair users. Donations will help the team to buy a special trekking wheelchair for the park as well as to create a website with all the information needed for wheelchair users to navigate the beautiful trails in the park. #WheeltheWorld

This trekking wheelchair will be later donated to a local organisation, to inspire other people with disabilities to come and explore the park.

We are a team of 12 people, with 4 trekking experts, 2 locals from the area, 2 physical therapists, 2 photographers and 1 film-maker, and, of course, Alvaro Silberstein:

The main purpose of this crowdfunding campaign is to raise the money to acquire the Black Diamond Black Trailrider, a trekking wheelchair that has been used for expeditions to Base Everest and other trekkings in Himalayas.

Wouldn't it be fair if people with disabilities could also have a chance to visit Patagonia?

The Trailrider will be donated to a local organisation in Patagonia, so others can do the same adventure in the future.聽We invite you to be a supporter of this initiative, that would allow everyone to explore this beautiful place of the world!

The idea is to record the whole trip and then broadcast it in every possible media outlet so our story can be used as a source of inspiration, inclusion and change. In order to do this the right way, we have partnered up with聽Weekend Heroes聽so they can edit and communicate all the audiovisual material, which then will be shared all over social media and traditional media.

Additionally, we will put up an article in our Blog called PatagoniaOnWheels, which will include all the details of the trip and valuable information for people who wants to replicate this experience. We will also include all the information about lodgings, restaurants and activities present in the Park and its surroundings.
