I met Sonja briefly in April at the Ladies' Paddle Symposium. Just another one of many paddlers out on the water, enjoying the sunshine with like minded people. If I'd known what she'd been through in the past year, I'd have realised just how impressive this was.
This mini-documentary tells Sonja's story, from her diagnosis with multiple sclerosis to her recent coast to coast paddle across Scotland. It's humbling, beautifully filmed, and a reminder of how much we often take for granted, and of the possibility for adventures that await us.
So far Sonja has raised over £650 for Climbing Out, a charity who work with young people who have faced a life changing injury or illness. To find out more about Sonja and her adventures, visit her blog, at paddlehigh5.wordpress.com
