Sam Harper-Miller, born with cerebral palsy, says his life was changed forever when a group of his friends carried him up to the top of Mount Snowdon in the United Kingdom.
The group made the climb to help raise money for Sam to get a new power wheelchair.
Sam’s group of five friends spent six hours carrying Sam up the 1,085m peak in a DIY stretcher. They built the stretcher using the top half of a manual wheelchair, wood, a harness, lifting strap and bamboo to make a what can be referred to as a Sudan-style chair.
“We did it and my life was changed forever. What (my friends) did for me on Saturday will live with me for evermore. They enabled me to reach a place otherwise inaccessible to me.”
The group’s next adventure is to climb the United Kingdom’s highest mountain, Ben Nevis. We wish them luck!
