Yesterday Sonja said to me, "Today is a very significant day in my life, I can feel it. I will look back on this day and know that this is the day that things changed for me."
Its not everyday that you hear someone say that about their first time on moving water, but 12 months ago Sonja was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis. This now affects her on a daily basis, but she hasn't let it affect her dreams. With a "the sky is the limit" ethos we have set off on an incredible journey which will take us from first paddles on moving water in North Wales all the way to multi day trips in Scotland and beyond, who knows where Sonja will go!
Sonja is keeping a blog here www.paddlehigh5.wordpress.com where you can find out more about who she is and her kayaking aspirations
This incredible journey could not be happening without the continued support of Pyranha Kayaks and the Fusion Sit on Top was quite literally the perfect boat to get out onto the moving water with. Stay tuned for more updates!
