My names Sam, I'm 20 years old and I've got a progressive muscle wasting condition known as Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy, meaning I've slowly become more dependant on the use of an electric power chair to get through my daily life.
Independence is everything to me and maintaining that is what I want to do, and one way I do this is through Powerchair Football a sport designed for those with physical disabilities.
Powerchair football is a 4-a-side styled football game, which the game requires the use of specialist sporting equipment. The chairs come is specially designed guards which make it possible to hit the and move the ball around the basketball sized court the sport is played on.
I play for Nottingham PFC, who are playing in the National Premiership League this season, which is coming to a close. Soon the team will be preparing for the next 2018/2019 season over the next coming months, with hopes of aiming to greater heights next season.
To ensure the team can aim higher, I am fundraising £1,000 for Nottingham PFC through my own social media campaign on my personal Facebook, Twitter and via my blogging platform Dynamic Double.
