It is the latest and overcome challenge of Bethlehem Soriano Raga, a Valencian pilgrim who, despite having an orthopedic prosthesis on her right leg, wanted to make the Camino de Santiago by the Portuguese route. Bethlehem does not understand physical impairments, and knows that with hard work anything is possible. Bethlehem, which 10 years ago when they amputated the leg, went through a very difficult period of his life, wanted to demonstrate that everything depends on the will, and that no challenge is beyond their reach. Something, of course, neither came into her head on his hard rehabilitation that lasted about 3 years.

However, Bethlehem has shown a vitality and strength of will undoubtedly be an example for many others. Since the amputation of his leg is Valencia wanted to meet this and other challenges, having already made a parachute jump and canoe down the River Sella; now it was the turn of the pilgrimage route. Starting O Porrino, Bethlehem arrived in Santiago yesterday with a friend, watching overcome his latest challenge. And, although the prosthesis is heavy and there were times when I wanted to leave, the Way prompted him to move on. Now think about your next challenge.

Un ejemplo para todos aquellos que, lamentablemente, pierden alguno de sus miembros. Aunque la vida cuesta más, obviamente con esfuerzo se llega a cualquier objetivo.
