Qasa News - Quads 4 Quads

Karen Joseph and Sandra from Rolling Inspiration will be joining the 300 quad and two-wheel off-road motorbike riders left Thunder City in September for a grueling four-day, 1000 km, off-road trip to Ballito; intending to raise R1 million for QASA projects and running costs. Another 300 riders will start the up trip back to JHB on 2nd October.Three quadriplegics and four paraplegics are braving this epic adventure on their adapted quad bikes, including Mandy Latimore, the first disabled lady to take part in this unique event. The challenge is difficult enough for off road motorbike riders, let alone for quadriplegics and paraplegics, and everybody will be holding thumbs for them.This will be a life changing event for the quadriplegics and paraplegics that take part, and they will need resilience and courage in order to complete.

There will be miles and miles of dust, rivers to cross, and mountains to overcome, on the way. Overnight stops will be at Standerton, Newcastle and Weenen and the support teams will be setting up camp at each of these towns.QASA is proud to be part of this epic adventure and exceptionally proud to see members participating. Disability is not a medical issue, it is a state of mind and, as the Paralympians have shown us, many challenges can be overcome.QUADS 4 QUADS is the brainchild of Family Adventures, and this is the fifth year that the event will run.
