9 year-old Tyler Armstrong and his dad, Kevin, plan to scale Argentina’s Mount Aconcagua in just a few weeks. Tyler has already climbed Mount Whitney and Mount Kilimanjaro and will become the youngest person to climb Aconcagua if successful.

Tyler is also raising awareness for Duchenne, a form of muscular dystrophy which affects around 1 in 3,600 boys worldwide. To donate to that cause, visit the cureduchenne.org and to follow Tyler’s climb, click here or check out his Facebook page.
