I just would like to thank the organisers and sponsors - Steven, Sandra, MediaCorp, Motor Image, and Subaru - for giving me the opportunity to participate in the 10th MediaCorp Subaru Impreza WRX Car Challenge 2011 Asian Face-Off.
I also would like to thank all the people involved in the event - participants, crew, marshalls, volunteers and supporters - for their support and assistance during the event.
I especially would like to thank my family and friends for their support, encouragement, love and believe in me. And also participants from car no. 3 who has become my close friends such as Abdul Hamid aka Kachang, Analiza, Desmond, Melissa, Felix, Ali, Zul, SQ, Andrew and etc.
Though I did not manage to meet my primary target of 48hours as I was forced to walk-out from the event at the 42hrs plus mark after my left palm had stick to the car surface due to badly infected blisters with blood and pus oozing out, and I was strongly advised by the paramedics and head marshalls to do so, I'm glad that I achieved my goals which are:
1. To raise public-awareness about disability sports.
2. To prove society that Disabled does not mean Unabled, it's THISabled.
3. Thisabled have fighting spirit and fortitude, and we deserve equal opportunity instead of being disqualified because of our disability.
4. To raise awareness and funds for Mr. Mohd Noor Azri and his family who are appealing for help. (http://victorianazri.blogspot.com
I look forward to next year's event and I hope to be able to last beyond the 60hrs marks by then if I'm given aother opportuity to participate.
