The New Face of Weet-Bix

November 8, 2016

 

 

When I was 7 years old I set myself a challenge of completing a Weet-Bix Kiwi Kids Tryathlon.  As one of the only wheelchair participants it was scary being amongst 1000s of other non-disabled kids.  I knew it would take me longer to complete and I didn't want to come last.  I didn't but that wouldn't have mattered anyway.  That's why the event is called a TRY.  All kids of different abilities take part, try the best they can and get a medal in the end.  Fast forward 4 years, I have now completed 17 with an aim of going to 20 by early 2017.  My story had inspired Sanitarium so much so that I was chosen along with 4 other kids to appear on the Weet-Bix cereal boxes!  When you set a challenge and give it your best, you just never know what you will achieve.
