Extra Mile - Lorraine Ritchie & JumpingKids

Extra Mile - Lorraine Ritchie & JumpingKids

Personal message

The aim of this campaign is to raise funds for two worthy causes:

1) To provide quality prosthetic attachments and support for our colleague Lorraine Ritchie after her Syme's foot amputation procedure in May. This will start with an improved socket interface, followed by the structural components, i.e. the foot and a connecting tube.

Market research puts the lower-end cost of these components at approximately R16 000. Any amounts raised over and above this will be put towards supporting Lorraine in her day-to-day accommodations as she regains mobility.

2) To support the work of the Jumping Kids charity (www.jumpingkids.org.za), which aims to provide access to quality prosthetic equipment, mainstream education and sporting opportunities for children living with lower limb amputations.

Jumping Kids works with children nationwide who would otherwise not have access to these, and are supported solely through donations and the efforts of volunteers.

All funds raised throughout this campaign will be divided equally between these two causes. BackaBuddy has agreed to facilitate the transfers to Jumping Kids, who are registered as a charitable beneficiary.
