Fundraising For Callum
I am Heather at Crop Hair Salon and I am taking part in the Brighton Marathon in April 2019, to raise funds for Callum who has quadriplegic cerebral palsy and epilepsy which affects every single aspect of his health.
I first met Callum when my mum used to transport him to school. He needs help with all his health and personal care, which requires round the clock attention.
He desperately needs a new "comfy" chair and that is the main reason why I am fundraising in aid of him. He has had his current chair since he was 11 years old and, now aged 17, it is no longer suitable for his needs. He has tried a new adult chair which is perfect for him but it costs £5000...
Jean, his Nan, said to me...
I have never seen such disappointment in his face when we had to take him out of it. The chair would go so far in making his life that much more comfortable.
I am asking you to sponsor me as I take on the Brighton Marathon in aid of Callum, whether the donation is big or small so we can put a smile on his face. I would really like to help give him the equipment he really needs and for something we take for granted.
If I am lucky enough to go past my total, we will be using the extra money to put towards a £20,000 eye recognition computer so that Callum can communicate, as he has normal brain activity and this can give him a much better quality of life.
There will be a blog of my training on Facebook and i will be be putting details of that here shortly.
Thank you !
