Weʼre raising £5,000 to Support Calum Titmus competing in disabled ice skating events
- Peterborough and Huntingdon, United Kingdom
- Disability support
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
Calum has Autism with Severe Learning Difficulties. He has very limited speech.
But in figure skating, he has found something he can excel at and where he can be an inspiration to other disabled people and every one who sees him perform.
He was the first Special Olympics figure skater to represent Great Britain back in 2012. He has won international titles in Finland, Iceland, Austria and the UK and most recently he brought back five medals from the World Figures event in Canada at Christmas 2016.
He is currently ranked Men’s No.1 in the World Rankings for Inclusive Skating.
But all this costs money - £5000 a year on regular training, plus travel and accommodation for events. There is no national financial support for learning disabled athletes. Calum needs help to keep inspiring others.
