Toni Jardine has had her sights on the Dakar Rally for many years but did not feel prepared until now to take on the challenge. In 2016 Toni will attend the Morocco Rally to start her qualification process for the Dakar and the next chapter in her racing career.
At an early age, Toni’s brother experienced a near drowning, which left him completely paralysed from a brain injury. Sadly he passed away. This is one of the reasons QASA and the Quads 4 Quads annual event are so close to her heart. Then, in her teens, one of Toni’s good friends, Jarrod Blackman, suffered a motorbike injury, which left him paralysed from the waist down. Toni joined him for several of the events over the years to support the cause.
In a bid to raise funds to fulfil her own dream of going to Dakar next year, Toni is selling wristbands. Ten percent of the profits will go to QASA. Please support both Toni and QASA and get yours, either from QASA or from Toni directly. Contact her on email@example.com
