Backpacking on the shoulders of friends

When a man with muscular atrophy told his friends that he dreamed of traveling the world, there was one small could he see everything he wanted to from a wheelchair?  With poor accessibility, even in cities, how would Kevan be able to maneuver in the more remote places like mountains to get to the vistas he was dreaming of?

Cue friends...

Seven of Kevan's closest friends created a backpack that would allow them to carry him in their Eurotrip, allowing Kevan to experience Europe in a way never imaginable via wheelchair.  They raised money online to make his dream a reality and are now creating similar backpacks for the public so that other people, like Kevan, will be able to get out of their wheelchairs and experience more of the world!

When we look for what is in the best interest of others, we often find that we serve ourselves, as well.

Be the change, it might just change you, too!
