Adrian Camara unable to do Oceana’s Reef Ride


Jerome Flores, the inspiring paraplegic cyclist who embarks on the Reef Ride from Belmopan to Dangriga tomorrow, conveyed the sad news this afternoon that his riding partner, Adrian Camara, will be unable to accompany him on this latest leg of his ride across Belize.

Orange Walk Town-based Mr. Camara, who was born without legs, accompanied Jerome for rides in 2009 & 2010. Sadly this week he has had to seek urgent medical attention in Mexico due to bladder and lung infections. Jerome said he is now even more motivated to succeed for his friend.

OCEANA IN BELIZE joins Jerome as he asks his supporters, indeed all Belizeans, to remember Adrian in their prayers for his full and speedy recovery.

The Reef Ride has two main aims: to bring awareness of and generate funds for the Belize Assembly for Persons With Diverse Abilities (BAPDA), and to bring attention to the call for a ban on offshore oil drilling due to its threat to Belize’s marine resources

The ride starts Friday November 18th in front of the National Assembly Building in Belmopan and ends November 19th in Dangriga, where Jerome will participate in the Garifuna Settlement Day Parade.
