An Inspirational Story


As a hard-playing rugby forward, Sean was used to putting his body on the line. That soon changed when severe motor-vehicle accidents left him with devastating physical injuries. Sean soon found himself fighting a losing battle against obesity and an ongoing struggle with depression. To aid his recovery, he took up kayaking and decided to tackle one of the toughest paddling competitions in the world: the 111-kilometre Hawkesbury Canoe Classic. His many hours training in Sydney and a trip to Alaska paddling amongst icebergs and running from bears fuelled a new appreciation for the beauty of the outdoors and recaptured his enthusiasm for living. Sean’s story is an uplifting experience for those looking for motivation to regain their fitness and enjoy life to the full. Book available here
