It takes a unique individual to hike to the top of Mount Kilimanjaro. It takes a miracle maker to take a child with you.
That is exactly what Zy Lee’s father, Chef Walter Lee, did.
Zy was born with one complete left arm, half a right arm, no right leg, a malformed left leg with three toes and dislocated hip joints. Mountain climbing may not have been in the cards for his body as it was naturally presented - but his father wanted to make sure Zy (and other children with special needs) could experience ALL the wonders of the world.
So more than a year ago, Chef Walter Lee reached out to the Freeloader Team & asked if the child carrier would be able to withstand the rigors of a long journey to the summit of Kilimanjaro.
Our team wholeheartedly responded that this is EXACTLY why the Freeloader was built: Families who wanted to go farther & adventure further than their children's legs could go - whether that was an outdoor adventure in rugged environments, a day at a favorite theme park, or an easy, comfortable outing for a few hours.
He simply wanted to experience more of the world with the ones he loved most. And adventure...is exactly what they did.
Together, Chef Walter Lee & his son Zy conquered the mountain as a team. With determination, supplies & the Freeloader Child Carrier, Zy Lee is now the youngest disabled person in the world to summit Mount Kilimanjaro.
We are proud of the Lees - they prove to the world that anything is truly possible. We are proud the Freeloader helped him accomplish this incredible feat but proudest of all of a father who insists on the best life for his son!
So we'd like to ask you a question: Is your child facing boundaries or limitations because of his or her health?
Do you wish you could participate in 5k races, theme parks, or simple walks in the outdoors - but wheelchairs, braces, or other factors prevent the experience?
Ditch your limits. Bust stereotypes. Get out and have an adventure. Families all over the world are now enjoying a new level of freedom & mobility (and taking their Freeloader to help them do what no family has ever done before). If Zy & his father can do it - you can too...
Memories are waiting. The world is calling. Welcome back to adventure.
