Our Campaign Story

ends 31 Dec 2022, 11:59 PM

Amidst the uncertainly of Covid, I was spiralling fast down the rabbit hole of self-doubt and depression, when thankfully I met a friend who introduced me to the sport of Stand-Up Paddling (SUP).

Time on the water has helped me quiet my mind and focus my thoughts. From barely balancing on the board, to paddling long distances in various sea conditions, I have fallen off, and still do, many, many times. But still, I rise each time on the board, and thankfully move forward in life, one stroke of the paddle at a time.

Mahalo is a Hawaiian term for gratitude and where the modern SUP sport originated. It is with deep gratitude that I am able to paddle out each time on the water. I would love to share this blessing and help someone else experience the joy and freedom that mobility can bring.

I will be paddling 130 km around islands in Thailand in November and would like to harness your good vibes to help me finish this race and grant a wish for a special child.

"I wish to have a motorised wheelchair."
JLP is a 5-year-old girl who lives with cerebral palsy. Cerebral palsy is a group of disorders that affect a person's ability to move and maintain balance and posture.
