Never Give Up

Max Frei, 71 completed the 85km Cape Town Big Walk on Sunday in just over six hours. He has participated in the race for the last 10 years in his three wheeled wheelchair. About 20 years ago, the Swiss born South African lost the use of his legs after he had a fall, helping a friend with home repairs. Max and his wife, Vivienne run a small and successful metal works business from their home in Cape Town. Apart from being a determined athlete, Max is also a very competent engineer, designing industrial sized machinery for their business and elevating gadgets to overcome his disability. After seeing Max ride around the block at high speed in his self made racing chair, I honestly have no excuse to ever give up on life. Max and Vivienne’s optimistic attitude towards challenges is an inspiration to the people around them and myself.
