Hi, I am a paraplegic and an athlete. I play wheelchair Basketball for Gauteng and just got called up to join the South African team but my sport wheelchair is very old and has been repaired so many times and I just can't afford to buy a new one.
It would mean the word to me if I can get a new Basketball wheelchair. This sport is my life and it's what I live for. I hope in my heart there is someone out there that can help me to pursue my dreams to play for SA.
Please, anyone if you can help I would be so grateful.
This is to help me to make my dream come true and represent South Africa. The wheelchair will be imported from China asthey build a good chair for around R40 000 but the best chair in the world is over R100 000 and I just don't have that money, but will be more than happy with a cheaper chair that is also not a bad sports chair.
I would be very competitive in the wheelchair... My main goal is to make the final team for Dubai 2022 but I won't as my current wheelchair is 9 years old and been fixed so many times with a new chair that is lighter my chances is 200 percent more to make the team as it increases mobility and speed and movement
