Seb has Cerebral Palsy Spastic Diplegia. He has difficulties with muscle control, balance and coordination. Spasticity in his legs makes them stiff and rigid so that simple things such as crawling, cruising and even sitting are very difficult for him. He cannot stand or walk independently. His life will be full of immense physical challenges and frustrations.We are looking to help Seb’s Family raise the £70,000 to pay for Selective Dorsal Rhizotomy (SDR) surgery, which removes or significantly reduces the spasticity in Seb’s legs allowing more normal movement and a chance for a more normal life.
Over the May bank holiday a team consisting of representatives from ACE and West Dereham Plant Ltd will be cycling from the ACE offices in Rampton, Notts to the KWT offices and factory in Biddinghuizen, the Netherlands. The team consists of cyclists with varying abilities from keen amateur cyclists to those who haven't been on a bike in years. The aim is to complete the 152 mile ride in just 3 days and will mean an intense training schedule for all the riders over the coming months.
