OT: Paddle for Hope

Most that know me well are aware I have an adult daughter with Rett Syndrome. It's a rare condition that pretty much exclusively targets girls.

Recently, I received an email from an old school mate that told me about a project he's involved with. They decided to paddle kayaks from Victoria to Tasmania across the Bass Strait. This is a treacherous section of ocean that often hits the news when boats (or crew members) are lost in the annual Sydney to Hobart race. I cannot believe they attempted this in kayaks.

I'm so proud of Dan (Williams) for doing this and for the funding they have raised for research into Rett Syndrome. Details on their "Paddle for Hope" are here: http://paddleforhope.com.au/
