Story

Well the challenge is completed, the equivalent of a half ironman triathlon between two spin classes, a positive way to mark a year since my accident.


The email below is from Developing Physio and shows where the money is going, we are already covering a quarter of the costs of building the burns module but it would be nice to do a bit more so if you can sponsor me please do so

Hi Roger

Many many congratulations, this is just wonderful news. Well done to you and thank you SO much, your fundraising is going to help immensely. This money is going specifically towards our ‘burns’ rehabilitation teaching module. 90% of Burns world wide are in Asia due to the poor safety regulations (gas canisters in houses etc). Access to a burns physio in Asia is a rarity and thousands of burns patients have none, so their shrunken skin limits their life in terms of serious disfigurement resulting in social prejudices.

Your fundraising covers a significant chunk (a quarter!), of the burns teaching module to be built. This should be finished by the end of the year. Then it will be put into the teaching app which CERN are building probono for us. In 2019 we will be able to start teaching Burns across Africa and Asia to communities who would otherwise have no rehabilitation.

Thank you so much Roger, if you would like to add (for anyone interested), for more information on other modules, please see www.developingphysio.com

Best wishes

Fiona
