Kayak Norway

I want you to meet Tom, the legend. When Intrepid Events decided to Kayak/Bike and Run to the Somme last year, Tom volunteered to be our support vehicle but Tom is also a triple amputee.

Tom was a paratrooper serving in Afghanistan when he lost both legs and his left arm. His prosthetics do the job but are limited and when he tries to be very active, they cause friction burns and bleeding so we are raising money for Tom to get some Gucci legs and left arm so he can get back to having a fuller and more active life.

We’ll be undertaking a gruelling 240-mile kayak across the white tipped rolling waves of the North Sea departing from the Shetland Isles and arriving in Televag, Norway 3 days later. Of course, Tom will be on the support boat and will be doing some of the kayaking too.

We need sea kayaks so if anyone has one to lend or can offer us a deal, I’d love to hear from you. Find out more on our charity page here, We have some pretty cheeky training sessions approaching, maybe you’d like to join us! Feel free to drop us a line info@intrepid-events.com and we’ll keep you posted on training schedule and opportunities.
