Morrie Ripley and Chandra Round, the Kwadsquad, both have injuries affecting all 4 limbs qualifying them as ‘quadriplegic’. Morrie is affected by an incomplete spinal cord injury, and Chandra through Hypoxic Brain Injury. Inspired by Rick and Dick Hoyt in the U.S.A they will be participating as a team in the Great White North Triathlon in Stony Plain, Alberta on July 7th, 2013. Morrie will be swimming, cycling and running 113 kms with Chandra in tow, giving her the experience of a lifetime!
Together this ambitious, adventurous duo will eliminate judgements about what is possible, and break down barriers for others wanting to follow in their footsteps. Please donate to this worthy cause, all of the money supporting the Adapted Adventures program, which provides opportunities for outdoor activity and sport to individuals with disabilities across Albert
The first goal is to raise awareness about the abilities of persons with disabilities, and to achieve Morrie’s motto of “It’s kind of fun to do the impossible.”
Their second goal is to raise money to help others with disability participate in physical activity and have the opportunities that Morrie feels so fortunate to have been afforded. Since his injury, Morrie has completed 8 marathons, 2 ½ iron man triathlons, and one full Ironman Triathlon, something his doctors never thought possible. Both Chandra and Morrie have far exceeded the recoveries their doctors expected of them, due largely to their hard work and tenacious spirits.
