OUT ON A LIMB EXISTS TO ENCOURAGE AND MOTIVATE PEOPLE, BOTH ABLE-BODIED AND THOSE LIVING DAILY WITH PHYSICAL DISABILITIES, TO USE THEIR TALENTS, STRENGTHS AND PASSIONS TO HELP, INSPIRE AND UPLIFT OTHERS.

DESPITE OUR PHYSICAL CHALLENGES WE ARE ON LIFE’S JOURNEY TO CREATE AWARENESS FOR DISABILITY.

THE OUT ON A LIMB TEAM WILL DISCOVER, IDENTIFY AND DOCUMENT REMARKABLE INDIVIDUALS WHO ARE ACHIEVING PRACTICAL AS WELL AS OUTSTANDING FEATS, AND RAISE FUNDING THAT WILL ALLOW OTHERS TO MEET THEIR BASIC NEEDS AND PROSTHETIC OR MOBILITY REQUIREMENTS.

 

“He who has a why to live can bear with almost any how.” ~ Friedrich Nietzsche

It’s our huge pleasure to announce that Bushy McKelvey will ride for charity over 24 hours from 17h00 on Wednesday 30th September (next week!) – 17h00 on Thursday 1st October 2020, to reclaim his Official Guinness World Record at Phakisa Oval in the Free State Province! 🏍🦿

After much push-me-pull-you bureaucracy over the past few weeks we happily confirm that Phakisa will once again donate use of this choice track for the epic venture. Bushy is very familiar and comfortable on the 2.4km oval, which has the requisite safety marshals and welcomes enthusiastic spectators! Naturally Covid regulations apply, but there’ll be live coverage via local radio and we’ll keep everyone up to date via social media as Bushy goes around and around.

Bushy’s motivation to endure extreme past personal hurdles has always been his inner purpose, the WHY that gives him grace enough to bear almost any HOW. And he has a big heart for small children, particularly those who are unable to help themselves. So Bushy is riding next week’s many taxing hours for the 5000 Per Month Feeding Schemes managed by the Grand Lodge of South Africa. Currently supporting over 2000 children nutritionally each month, the initiative aims to double this number beginning with Bushy’s epic ride and YOUR DONATION PLEASE – simply SMS ‘RACE’ to 40554 and your R20 will be most well spent!

[SMS’s cost R20 and free SMS’s do not apply. Network and administrator fees are deducted from revenue paid]

Please contact us at: ooalorgza@gmail.com for more donation details. 

Follow this inspiring, courageous feat and remember Bushy’s life message:

“If you dream it and believe it, you CAN achieve it!”
