TOPIC: The Great Paddle Round 2011
The Great Paddle Round 2011 11 Years, 4 Months ago Karma: 0
I am an above knee amputee who is planning to kayak around the coast of the UK in aid of Help for Heroes and BLESMA (the British Limbless Ex-Servicemen’s Association). I’m looking to raise as much money as possible but my target is £250,000. I will be starting and ending this challenge in Portsmouth.

I intend to start this challenge at the beginning on May 2011 and estimate that it will take me 4 months to complete.

I lost my leg whilst serving with the Royal Navy and so these two charities are very close to my heart. They help in the rehabilitation of service personnel who have suffered terrible injuries whilst serving their country at both home and abroad. Both charities provide access to sporting activities such as kayaking, sailing, diving, sailing, wheelchair basketball and skiing which help once active people come to terms with their disabilities and move forward with their lives.

In order to raise the money I want to, I need to up the profile of the event as much as possible and you can help by joining my Facebook group ‘The Great Paddle Round 2011’ or following me on Twitter ‘richieoneleg’.

If you think you can help in other ways please do not hesitate to contact me.
