    Help Paralyzed Veteran Race The LB2CAT
    Jul201408

    The concept is simple: Anthony Radetic wants to be a pro Sea-Doo racer and compete on the same level as competitors that don’t have a disability. Anthony was paralyzed in a motorcycle accident in 2004 and he is motivated by competitive

    endurance PWC racing because there is no “special” or “disabled” category. Neither the sport nor his competitors care if Anthony is in a wheelchair or not—they care if he can race or not. He can race and will be doing so on July 20, 2014 at the LB2CAT Offshore Endurance National Championships in the Manufacturer Stock Class. This is a first step in becoming a Pro Rider.

    1632028_1404154792.2256Since his accident, Anthony has conquered many sports to include Para-Alpine Skiing and Handcycling. Above all else, Anthony considers himself an athlete. While he can’t compete fully in every sport, Jet Sport Boating is one that levels the playing field and focuses purely on an individual’s talent and competitive spirit.

    Last year Anthony was part of the Never Quit Challenge—A 1600 mile PWC event that started in Key West, Florida and ended in New York, New York. In June Anthony was a team member with Project Road Warrior in which he drove a Can-Am Spyder from Seattle, Washington to Tampa, Florida—3900 miles in 10 days.

    Please help us with getting Anthony to Long Beach for the LB2CAT Offshore Endurance National Championships. BRP
    has stepped up (yet again) huge and is providing him with two RXT-X aS 260 Sea-Doo watercraft. Now we are looking to fully fund the trip to include airfare, hotel rooms, training rides and safety equipment. Please help make this dream a reality for Anthony! Thank you.
