Pilgrimage In A Wheelchair: These Friends Overcame 800 Km Along The Path Of The Apostle James

At home, their wives and children were waiting for two friends. Their families were worried for them and at the same time they were proud of them.

Justin and Patrick want very much that their pilgrimage will become an example for other people. After all, in life it’s so important to share both joyful and sad moments with your friends.

The results of this trip Justin and Patrick reflected in the co-written book “I’ll push you: a journey of 500 miles, two friends and one wheelchair.”
