Cure Duchenne "Hero"

I recently had the chance to work on a humbling film project with the Organization Cure Duchenne and 12 year old climber Tyler Armstrong. Set in Ecuador, Tyler aims to take on giants and climb a 19,000 ft. volcano in honor of children with a rare form of Muscular Dystrophy called Duchenne. He is not stopping there and plans to climb all Seven Summits, the seven highest peaks on the seven continents. Thus far Tyler has climbed 290,257 feet, raised 29,564 dollars for the over 300,000 children battling Duchenne. We recently got the chance to climb with Tyler on his epic journey and capture him in his element climbing Volcan Cayambe in Ecuador which almost 19,000 in elevation. I Hope you enjoy the short film as much as we enjoyed to making it.
