Modified wheelchair that climbed Snowdon crowned at Remap awards

Published: July 6, 2018

A modified wheelchair pieced together so that a campaigner could use it to climb Mount Snowdon is one of the winning pieces of equipment at the Remap awards, which took place recently.

The “Snowdon Push” is a fund-raising challenge organized by Back Up Trust – a charity that supports people with a spinal cord injury.

Teams of between 10 and 16 people aim to conquer Mount Snowdon, which at over 3,500 ft is the highest mountain in England and Wales.
