YPO and Associação Salvador conquer Pico!

Between October 11th and 14th 2023, YPO and Associação Salvador will be climbing to reach the top of the mountain Ilha do Pico, in the Azores. A mission of solidarity, adventure, an example of overcoming barriers.

Invited by Associação Salvador, YPO will be joining this Solidarity Challenge to overcome and complete one of greatest challenges in Portugal: climb about 2351 meters of altitude to reach the top of the mountain!

As a team, in a unique initiative that will combine teambuilding and a social purpose, we will climb to the top of Ilha do Pico and Maria Lurdes de António, who has been supported by Associação Salvador, will join us in this journey.

Before her accident, Lurdes was an athlete and participated in marathons, trails, canoeing and triathlons. For Lurdes, the sky is the limit, and the summit of Ilha do Pico is something achievable, regardless of any barriers.

By overcoming this challenge we hope to spread a message that it is possible to overcome many physical barriers, regardless of physical disabilities or reduced mobility.

Join us!

Uma aventura que vai contribuir para mudar a vida a centenas de pessoas com deficiência motora.
