The Walk On Project Award recognizes the defense and the transmission of social values of mountaineering. Values such as overcoming, effort and teamwork; commitment and optimism as an engine of change. The WOP Foundation has considered that the career of Sir Chris Bonington is worthy of receiving this award, reflecting these values with his work.
In these years WOP has forged a road without rest, step by step, to explain its mission in the fight against the neurodegenerative diseases.
The The Walk On Project Award is part of those social values associated with the sport. In fact, WOP is present in the world of mountaineering with the WOPeak project, featuring Alberto Iñurrategi, Juan Vallejo and Mikel Zabalza. In addition, now WOP is participating in the greater challenge of oceanic navigation, the Vendée Globe, with the team of Didac Costa.
