SELWYN TIMES Latest Christchurch news at www.star.kiwi Tuesday August 1 2017 7 News ACHIEVEMENT: Doyleston resident and paraplegic Ian Walker taking part in the Christchurch Marathon on his hand-bike in June. ​ DIY supply specialists offer products the professionals use Setback in bid to make New York marathon • By Georgia O’Connor- Harding NOTHING HAS ever stopped paraplegic Ian Walker from taking on enduring marathons – in spite of having his fair share of knock-backs. He can be seen training on his hand-bike every second day in Ellesmere. However, he was denied entry in the Christchurch Marathon for seven years due to safety concerns. After being the first person to hand-bike the Buller Gorge Marathon this year, the Doyleston resident was finally given entry into June’s Christchurch event. Now he is gearing up for his biggest race yet – the New York City Marathon. Through disability support organisation Achilles International, Mr Walker has been selected to take part in the event in November. But he has had another setback, having the sponsorship for his trip to the Big Apple cut. The company Mr Walker did not wish to name, was going to cover most of the costs for the trip. “These things happen, there is not much they can do . . . I have just got try raise that money somewhere else,” he said. As well as fundraising Mr Walker plans to raise awareness of serious brain injuries, co-occurring with spinal cord injuries, on social media through the three long-distance rides he is taking part in. Mr Walker became a paraplegic in 2006 after he crashed into the back of a truck between Napier and Hastings. Before then, he was a nationally ranked soccer referee. Highlights were refereeing the 1999 Chatham Cup final and the 2003 New Zealand National Soccer League. He had also competed in nine marathons. Mr Walker suffered a fracture dislocation of his third and fourth thoracic vertebrae, fractured a spinal segment in his neck, broke his sternum, had facial injuries and lost several teeth. But Mr Walker’s greatest concerns is he was never treated for a brain injury. “I did fly head first into the back of a truck and I can’t remember the accident,” he said. Mr Walker said he often gets tired, his short-term memory is not the best and can get irritable. He is planning to see a occupational therapist next week. But he is determined spread the message, there is a life after being made a paraplegic. “Being in a wheelchair doesn’t mean your life stops, it just means your life takes a different path really,” he said. •To help Mr Walker get to New York City, go to https://givealittle.co.nz/ cause/iansrideforsci Anyone embarking on some DIY around their property wants to be sure it looks top-notch when completed.
