“When we least expect it, life sets us a challenge to test our courage and willingness to change; at such a moment, there is no point in pretending that nothing has happened or in saying that we are not yet ready. The challenge will not wait. Life does not look back.” Paulo Coelho
In this week’s blog I’m happy to share the words of my friend Lana Williams, who recently volunteered to help another friend in an inspiring cause. This is a story about cycling, travel, volunteering, fund raising and, ultimately, overcoming adversity. I hope you enjoy it.
Ride with no limits
Riding 14,275 kilometres around Australia on a pushbike is not something most people would do. In fact, they’d probably just laugh and say “get real”. But not Glenn Carter. He has undertaken this very challenge to raise money for a great cause.
Two years ago, Glenn’s friend Emma Booth was paralysed in a car accident. Undaunted, Emma has since set her sights on representing Australia in the 2016 Paralympics. Glenn’s ride around Australia will help Emma get to Rio to compete in the Equestrian events.
