POFF 2020 Crossing Continents

with Karen Darke
Eastgate Theatre and Arts Centre - Auditorium

A session of short films exploring human endurance followed by an evening with a true one-of-a-kind adventurer. Paralysed from the chest down following a climbing accident aged 21, Karen Darke’s current Quest79 project – nine rides on seven continents to raise money for the Spinal Injuries Association – has already seen her claim a hand cycling gold medal at the 2016 Paralympic Games, shatter the women’s hand cycle land speed record in Nevada, and ride along the Ganges from its source in the Himalayas. Find out more about these and other remarkable tales from one of the world’s most inspirational (and down to earth) endurance athletes.
