    Dave's Story...

    David Leach, England and Wales Lacrosse player, father of two, husband, and very talented Osteopath whom I have had the pleasure, (and pain)! of his healing hands.

    Possibly one of the most vivacious characters I have met in my entire life, one of the good guys we so sorely need in the World.

    On December 11th, during a lacrosse match, Dave came into nasty head to head collision and instantly broke his neck. Knowing the body as well as he does - he instantly knew something was not right when the loss of all sensation from the chest downwards became apparent. This injury is now not only devastating for everyone who knows and loves him; but also life-changing too.

    As ever - I cannot sit on my hands and not be a part of this support to get the n ecessary funds in order to help support his family both in terms of his business to survive, but also to support his wife Louise to be able to be all round carer for both he and the two young daughters. With this said, the life changing aspects will not only just be mental and of course physical, but also impacting on the way the home and transport will need to change.

    Davey will need, in time, funds to get his home purpose built for his now disability. Adapted wet rooms, ramps, wheelchair access etc. As well as this, the family car will need to be adapted for a wheelchair- things we all too easily take for granted...

    SO.... This is where I need YOU and your wonderful support that I know you can help with.

    I am going to channel David's Lacrosse Team Number, 9, within my challenge fundraiser.

    I will be doing over the course of 2 days; a 9km Swim / 99 Miles Bike / 9 Mile run with the total time from all three disciplines to hit under 9 hours.

    I will be on social media throughout so you can check in at any time, and even support me too! My handles are: @nattyb0 (instagram) and Natalie Xonia Lawrence on Facebook

    Also- please follow Dave's journey on their own Instagram page: @waveydaveylaxrecovery
