    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.

    Story

    Before I became ill I loved sports. The only thing I need to participate again is the right equipment. My current physio is usually indoors in a sitting or laying position. A recumbent trike would allow me to get outside and enjoy the same things as everyone else. I could ride a bike again. I could build the muscle essential to managing my condition, outside, with other people, without the dizzyness that comes with an upright position.
    Any extra money raised will be donated to EDS UK.

    Hi, I'm Rachel, Two years ago I became bedbound with a combination of EDS III, PoTS, and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. Today, I use a combination of an electric wheelchair, splints and crutches to be as independent as possible. Enjoying being outdoors again is part of that plan.
