We support people with Spinal Cord Injury to help them live full, independent lives

Charity Registration No. 1075317

Story

After sustaining a spinal cord injury in 2011, I found my joie de vivre when I started skiing, it brought back my determination to succeed and zest for life, following a very traumatic period of my life.

Having spent time in the USA race training and made some good progress, I have now been asked to be an Invitational Athlete for the British ParaSnowsport Team and will be doing some training camps and races with them in Europe before heading back out to the states for a couple of months to train and race some more.

This is a costly endeavour and I'm going to need as much help as I can get with equipment, travel, training fees, accommodation, as well as living costs. The amazing charity Aspire have agreed to help me with these costs, provided I raise sufficient funds for them. 

Thanks to all of those who have helped me so far and thanks in advance for anything that you can give!
