Three challenged athletes, one goal.
On the 25th May 2021 at 07h00, three people living with disabilities will attempt to build a “Bridge” between Mossel Bay and George by participating in a three man relay.
Fltr is Pieter Koekemoer, Carl de Compos and Sean Snyman
Pieter Koekemoer a police officer in the service of the Mossel Bay SAPS who is an amputee with his right leg being removed from just below the knee will cycle from the tourist office in Mossel Bay to Greatbrak. A distance of 25km.
Carl De Campos, a visually impaired athlete will then take over the reigns where upon he will run 15km on the back roads past Glentana towards the Airport for the next 15km.
Sean Snyman, a 57 year old with a brachial plexus of the right arm which is no longer operational will complete the trio will take over the baton and complete the 55km course.
The aim of this challenge which will take place on Africa day is to show case the tenacity of people living with disabilities and also to raise funds for beach wheelchairs to be used in both towns allowing wheelchair users the opportunity to experience the sea which up until now has not been possible. These wheelchairs are expensive and cost approximately R60 000 each and we would like to see at least 2 in the District but more would be better. They will also be carrying a message from the Mossel Bay to George committing to creating a better environment for people living with disabilities and creating the preferred destination for them through acknowledging the right to Universal Accessibility.
We are appealing to you as individuals, companies and organizations to help us realize this dream by pledging your support in this document but also by committing to a donation which will be used for this cause.
