Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page!

Alex is a very happy and active seven year old who was born with PFFD (Proximal Focal Femoral Deficiency) and Fibula Hemimelia. Basically this means when he was born his left leg was much shorter than the right, and with no ‘scaffolding’ to hold it up. He has no ball and socket joint in his left hip and virtually no femur bone. Despite this, Alex has always adapted well and ever since he can remember he’s been wearing a prosthetic leg. Last summer he got his first running blade which has been brilliant and has enabled Alex to be more active; running and jumping around with his friends.

In 2022 our family got to know all about LimbPower Juniors and the amazing things they do to help children like Alex and their families. In March we are excited to be attending their #ICanCamp in the Brecon Beacons, where we’ll be joining other families with children with limb differences for an outdoor residential activity weekend.

Organised by LimbPower, this exciting weekend programme of adventure activities includes climbing, abseiling, high ropes, canoeing and paddle boarding and is to help young people build resilience, confidence and self-esteem and make new friends.

On Saturday 25th March Alex will be completing a hiking challenge across Dartmoor to raise money for LimbPower, and to enable other families to attend these events. Walking all the way from Haytor to Heatree Activity Centre, he'll be navigating his way up and over tors, avoiding bogs, walking through deep dark woods, passing through a medieval village and crossing rivers, all as a personal challenge and to support this worthwhile charity.  

Please dig deep and give whatever you can; we are grateful for every pound you can spare.
