Man Completes 3,000-Mile Wheelchair Trip

Man Completes 3,000-Mile Wheelchair Trip: “He had to change tires 11 times and once fell to the ground and spent the night in a ditch, but 65-year-old Russian Vladimir Ksenchak rolled undaunted into Madrid on Tuesday at the end of a 3,000-mile wheelchair trip.

Ksenchak left Moscow on June 11 and made his way through Russia, Belarus, Poland, Germany, the Netherlands, Luxembourg and France before reaching Spain. He said the journey was intended to inspire the disabled and denounce illegal drug use. Ksenchak lost a leg to circulatory problems eight years ago.”
