“We all have the power of choice to control our actions and reactions, and with good choices, you can change any situation for the better” – Rajesh Durbal
Pepperclub Hotel & Spa had the pleasure of welcoming US born Rajesh Durbal, a triple amputee athlete, two times ironman record holder, global motivational speaker and founder of LIVE FREE Foundation, back to hotel during the month of March.
Having previously stayed at the hotel in March 2014 while participating in the Cape Town Cycle Tour during his Freedom Tour to Africa tour (See article: Triple amputee, Rajesh Durbal, inspired after riding Argus with local amputees), Rajesh once again visited the Mother City to participate in the race, as well as to debut the documentary of his Freedom Tour to Africa tour, Beyond Boundaries.
Pepperclub Hotel & Spa was honoured to host the red carpet affair and exclusive screening of the documentary nine mountain climbers, six of them physically disabled, that successfully summit the tallest freestanding mountain in the world, Mt. Kilimanjaro.
Led by Rajesh Durbal and world renowned neurosurgeon of The Steelers, Dr. Joe Maroon, the Beyond Boundaries documentary details first-hand the experience of the climbers’ preparation, struggles, challenges, and ultimately their success as they reach the top of the summit. Guests at the screening witnessed the team encounter difficult terrain and battle with altitude changes, all the while working as a team, pulling together and using all their resources to make their way through it – needless to say there wasn’t a dry eye in the house at the end of the evening.

Following the premier on Saturday, 7 March, Rajesh participated in the 2015 Cape Town Cycle Tour. While a shorter route this year, Rajesh was still happy to be able to take part in the world famous event for the second time.
Rajesh truly is an inspiration to us all and reminds us that anything is possible if you put your mind to it. For more information on his inspirational journey, please visit his website: http://live-free.net/
