WheelchairTrip: A Journey from One End of the World to the Other

Three hundred and twelve days; two continents and fifteen countries; over 45 thousand kilometers and hundreds of hours behind the steering wheel; from one end of the world to the other; Michał Woroch and Maciej Kamiński, two friends in their wheelchairs, traversed both Americas - from Tierra del Fuego to Prudhoe Bay in Alaska - proving to themselves and to the world that disability does not close the path to fulfilling your dreams.

They christened their unique journey WheelchairTrip - a series of adventures, meetings, and joys, as well as challenges, limitations, and stressors. Theirs is a story of overcoming barriers, full of inspiration, setting ever-greater goals and reconciling with the fact that sometimes not everything is possible.

The great journey of Michał and Maciej is just coming to an end, and New York is one of their final stops.

Join us and to listen to the incredible stories of these two friends, their extraordinary experiences and reflections, illustrated with absorbing photographs from the route through South America, Central America and North America.
