‘The Art of the Possible’
In July 2022, the Kayak 4
heroes team completed their iconic ‘World First’ expedition to become the first
adaptive team (containing individuals with injuries/disabilities) to kayak from
Land’s End in Cornwall to John O’ Groats in Scotland. The team faced an
incredibly testing journey of over 1,500 kilometres – across some of the
toughest coastal waters in Europe.
Setting off from Land’s End
on the 19th June 2021, the team worked together to overcome their
respective injuries and disabilities to successfully complete their iconic
record-breaking challenge in just 26 days!
Beyond the gruelling physical
challenge itself, the team managed to raise an amazing £110,000 for a charity close
to their hearts – the Armed Forces Para-Snowsport Team (AFPST). In addition, it
was the ambition of the team that their expedition would help inspire the next
generation of adaptive adventures from across the UK.
