Adaptive Grand Slam – Aconcagua Challenge

5a3a5792A team of adventurers are on a mission to be the first disabled team in history to complete the notorious Grand Slam. We are delighted to support their latest challenge.

The Adaptive Grand Slam Foundation (AGSF) supports members of the disabled community to undertake physical challenges and raise money for service-providing charities.  The team climbs using modified techniques and equipment and they hope to break four world records by the time they complete the Grand Slam.

In January 2017, they will attempt Mt Aconcagua, Argentina, which is the highest peak in the Western and Southern Hemisphere.

MEET THE TEAM

The team is made up of 13 individuals, three of whom are ex-PARAS wounded and disabled in Afghanistan.  They have already walked to the North Pole and climbed Mt McKinley, Mt Elbrus and Mt Kilimanjaro.  Read more about them here.
