The Puffin Paddle

01 Nov - 12 Dec 2009

On the first of November last year my brother James Gribble had an accident while travelling in Zambia damaging his spinal column rendering him a quadriplegic. He had been for a run and was dehydrated and sat down to rest before falling backwards and rolling over his head damaging his C4C5 vertebrae.The Puffin Magic Foundation had been set up to provide support to him throughout his rehabilitation. Please visit for more information. This is a registered charity hence all donations are tax deductible.

To try to raise money for his rehabilitation I am attempting to paddle the length of the Murray River from Albury Wodonga to Goolwa in South Australia. The distance is close to 2200 kms and could take anywhere between 40 and 60 days depending on the weather. For such a journey I am anticipating some intense training before departure and obviously a sore torso at its completion.

Donations are welcome and will be recognised.
Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
