    7 rare disordered challenged Mt. Hehuan

     

    [by Yu-Wei Tzeng] On the weekend of the 11th & 12th of July, seven brave challengers cheered on by a group of support team reached the top of Mt Hehuan (3416m). Challengers have lived with rare disorder; have spent a significant part of their life in a wheelchair or crutch. Over 2 full days the support team including medical staffs, photographers and challengers’ families pushed and lifted challengers up and back down the mountain across uneven surfaces and through some very tough terrain.


    One of the challengers, was asked if one day you could walk without the need for a wheelchair, what's would be the first thing she would like to do. "I want to climb hundreds of mountains" was her response. So began the journey with one such mountain, Mt Hehuan.


    In order to be well prepared, training began in early June. With challenger group and support team training hard together to push boundaries and strengthen their physical stamina to ensure safe journey. Their motto was simple. The bigger you can dream, the farther you can go.
