Vane, the unseer woman who came to the top

A story that shows us that what is essential is invisible to the eyes. The story of Vane, the blind athlete who climbed the Champaquí hill.

Stories of people

We tell you the story of  Vanesa Fundaró , the  37-year-old blind athlete who reached the top of Cerro Champaquí, in Córdoba. She cheered up, and knocked down all the obstacles that were presented to her. She fulfilled a dream, an outstanding debt to herself. And he got to the top.

Vanesa climbed along  with the Cross Run group  . Thanks to different companions of this band, he had enough support to cheer up. And he did it at once. This athlete is dedicated to training in different disciplines.  He ran marathons , kayaking and much more. But  the Champaqui  proposal was a different challenge. It involved a  hard training  and a hard day. However, Vane was encouraged. Carlos and Magdalena Nieto (father and daughter), members of the Cross Run club, promoted her. They gave him his support and all the containment Vane needed to  give yes  to the proposal to raise  the Champa .

Vane was aware it wasn't going to be easy. And what stopped her most was the fact of delayed her  trekking companions . However, everyone showed a great interest in living the experience with her. So Vane gave the yes. The group generated a  network of support and mutual containment , which made this adventure unique. It was an unforgettable trekking day for everyone present. After two days of climbing, they reached the top.


 Collective learning 

Adventure was an apprenticeship for everyone. Because, in addition to the individual challenge, there was a collective goal. And because it was news in all media!

The Champa received for the first time the visit of a non-seer woman. It was a gift for all Cordobeses. A hope for the non-seer population. And an impetus to continue to believe that our dreams can be fulfilled if there is collective support. Vane does not stop thanking her team and recognizing that the group work was the one that took her to the top after all her effort.
