My name is Nicolas Collia. I am 34 years old, Argentinean, boy scout leader, a father of two young children. 4-5 years ago I'm planning to cross the Andes (Mendoza-Argentina to the Pacific Ocean Valparaíso-Chile) by bike. In 2011, and one month after the birth of my first child, and in of absence any obvious symptoms, I was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin lymphoma. I received chemotherapy for 6 months. I had good and bad moments during my treatment. Currently I am fully recovered and as father and scout leader feel I can be an example of struggle against adversity. This has been delayed due to the diagnosis of lymphoma, but I have to beat myself and show that life and dreams are possible despite any disease or condition. I think the main obstacle to fulfilling dreams is oneself, and it is the hardest to overcome. I intend to do this trip in December 2014.
To realize this dream I need financial assistance to cover travel expenses and food during the crossing. I hope your help and support to make this dream a reality and show others that things are possible. Thank you very much!

If we don't reach the 100% of the funding goal, we will use it to do the following:

  • With the 10%

    Buy food for all the trip

  • With the 25%

    Buy equipment and accommodation

  • With the 50%

    Cover the cost of transfers back from Chile to Mendoza

  • With the 75%

    Cover the cost of round trip to Mendoza (from Buenos Aires)
