Alongside Activ staff, the determined trio are looking forward to crossing the finish line alongside 45,000 West Australians at the race on Sunday.
Inspired by the dreams of Activ ambassadors, the trio, who all live together in Willagee, decided to make their own dream come true and take part in the event for the first time in its 40 year history.
Activ support worker Tiffany Lampitoc said even though they faced daily challenges, such as visual impairment, scoliosis and epilepsy, they wouldn�t let anything get in their way.
�When I first mentioned that I was taking part in this year�s race, the three of them all said that they would love to join me, so we set up a team straight away,� she said.
�It�s such a great event to get involved in and even better because it supports people living with disability in the community.�
Activ chief executive Tony Vis said it was stories like this that had made the race WA�s most loved community event for more than 40 years.
�The Chevron City to Surf for Activ is about celebrating people living with disability and supporting them to achieve their dreams, whatever they may be. It�s the very reason that we started the event, and also why it�s been so successful over the 40 year journey,� he said.
�It�s great to see our people getting involved in the event as part of the community, and I�m looking forward to cheering them on as they cross the finish line.�
The team have set up their own fundraising page, with all money raised going directly towards supporting people living with disability in WA. Visit chevroncityto surf2015.everydayhero.com/au/harriottheroes.
