It was the trip of a lifetime, travelling over 1500km through the middle of Queensland to fundraise for children with disability.
Queensland father and daughter duo, Oscar and Alex Borlase hit the road last week on a six-day motorbiking adventure from Bowen to Birdsville with the goal of raising $5000 for Queensland charity CPL - Choice, Passion, Life.
Dad Oscar is a keen motorcyclist and the outback adventure became a reality when 25-year-old daughter Alex, who was born with cerebral palsy, decided she wanted to get in on the family motorbike tradition.
"After two operations, botox and numerous physio over the years, I still have great difficulty walking, but I wasn't going to let that stop me," Alex said.
"That's when I discovered side cars and decided to buy one to attach to my dad's motorbike."
After mapping out their five-day trip, which sees the duo stop in Charters Towers, Hughenden, Winton, Boulia, Bedourie and Birdsville, the father and daughter decided to use it as an opportunityto raise money for a cause close to their hearts.
"CPL assisted me greatly when I was a child and we thought it would be lovely to give back and show thanks for all they did for me and my family," Alex said.
CPL's Fundraising Manager Carlee Hay said although the trip was one of the most adventurous the CPL team has seen, it was also incredibly heart-warming.
"We're so proud to have been part of Alex's story to date and can't thank her enough for raising money and awareness for other children with disability," she said.
