Quest 79 is a project to encourage you to connect with your passion, bring friends and people together and help others at the same time by raising money for a good cause - the Spinal Injuries Association (SIA).
Karen Darke's personal Quest 79 is to cycle 7 continents, 9 rides, in a minimum of 7,900km involving a significant long bike journey on each continent, and 2 rides in Paralympic Games. Karen cycles with friends, lives simply and basically, and rides as lightweight as her wheelchair and kit will allow! See more at www.karendarke.com/blog and the Quest 79 links from the home page.
The team invite you to take on your very own Quest 79. Invent your own challenge, or take part in one of our challenges in connection with the SIA. It doesn’t matter how small or large it may seem, as long as it feels exciting, challenging and something that takes you a little bit out of your comfort zone. You may need a few drops of courage to face some fear and get started, but your journey will be special and seemingly magical things will unfold. It could be any journey that inspires you, or it could be connected to the number 79. For example, choose an activity to travel 79m, 79km, 790km or whatever you choose to stretch yourself and have fun with friends.
If you can raise some funds through your challenge, it would be great if you could add them here. Collectively we hope we can make the fundraising target of £79,000.
