Story

Support our mission to end stroke

We are about to take on the challenge of a lifetime, for a cause that is very close to our hearts. Our mother passed away in 2009 due to a stroke. Our sister also had a stroke three years ago, and was very lucky to survive. She received treatment and looked was looked after by professionals in a clinic in Buenos Aires, and is still recovering.

Our experience has encouraged us to do whatever we can to shine a light on stroke and the opportunities there are to improve prevention, treatment and support. So, my brother Diego; two dear friends Eduar and Juani, and I have decided to go straight to the top! We are going to climb the Aconcagua, the highest mountain on earth outside the Himalayas, to raise awareness and funds for stroke.

If we have learned anything from our experience it is that stroke affects everyone young or old, rich or poor. That’s why we have decided to use our challenge to raise funds to support the World Stroke Organisation in its mission to deliver a life free from stroke. Please get behind us on this challenge and make a donation to this worthwhile cause!

    We had a great time attempting to climb mount Aconcagua. It was very tough too. The wheather conditions made it impossible to reach the summit. We got to 6,200 in the end. That was our summit. We came back full of great memories and lots of learning. Most likely we will come back in a couple of years. I want to thank everyone who supported our cause. The money collected will go to WSO in February. So if you want to try a little contribution until then, it’ll be much appreciated.I have uploaded a few pictures. Thanks again. Pablo
