Weʼve raised £65 to help a young girl, Chantelle to buy a sports wheelchair to enable her to play her sports passion, wheelchair Basketball to her best ability.
- Funded on Saturday, 28th October 2017
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.
Myself and 4 others will be jumping out of a plane and doing a sky dive to raise money for a young girl, Chantelle Truchon.
Chantelle has been diagnosed with a degenerative disease called Freidreich Ataxia. It has taken away Chantelles ability to walk and now uses a wheelchair day to day.
Over the last year she has found a new passion in wheelchair basketball, we will be raising money for her to purchase her very own wheelchair that will be custom built for herself. Being designed for herself, it will mean it will enable her to play to her best ability because they are extremely light to help with her movement. With having her own sports wheelchair she will be able to excel within this sport.
Chantelle herself will be taking part in the sky dive, alongside myself, Mesha, Collin and her Aunty Jenny, on the 16th of August! I am absolutely terrified and not sure how I'm going to manage jumping from that height... when I am terrified of heights😂.
We are aiming to raise over £3000 for this wheelchair, I myself am hoping to raise at least £500 myself...
I am so thankful for any donations no matter how little, as Chantelle will be 😊
Thank you very, very much 💙
