On November 1, 2017 the Cerebral Palsy Association of BC (CPABC) re-named their Equipment Assistive Devices Fund the “Jason and Rand Fund” in recognition of two of their members’ supersized athletic endeavors and hearts.
In 2017, the dynamic duo smashed the Guinness World Record for fastest half marathon pushing a wheelchair by a full 20 minutes, and captured international media attention. They were denied the official record due to a policy that states they must use an un-modified, commercially available chair – a standard that is out of reach for many individuals with disabilities. Jason and Rand’s home-made racing wheelchair reflects their inclusive, do-it-yourself attitude and belief that no one should be left behind.
Either way, the pair have Guinness-World-Record sized hearts. Jason and Rand’s record-smashing race helped raise over $7,000 for CPABC programs and services.
