About the Project:
Through the Healthy Parks Healthy People Active in Parks Program, Parks Victoria is assisting people with a disability to be more active and feel healthy by improving their access to Victoria’s natural environment. In 2013 Parks Victoria entered two teams including a wheelchair in the grueling 100kms in 48hrs Oxfam Trailwalker Challenge. This marked the first time in the world a competitor with a physical disability requiring a wheelchair has entered fundraising challenge, and they made it – in record time! This film made by Storyscape documents the journey of the two Parks Victoria teams that made it possible.
