Personal message

On 23 May 2009 I was involved in a hit-&-run collision on my motorcycle, which left me with an amputated right leg below the knee.
 
14 years later I have a dream of being a World Para Surfing Champion!!!
 
I have just been selected to represent my country at this year's ISA WORLD PARA SURFING CHAMPIONSHIPS which is to be held at Huntington Beach, California in the USA.
 
Please note that we will be receiving NO funding from South Africa & all individuals will have to raise their OWN funding.....should they wish to go!
 
The cost of departing from East London, South Africa (via an international airport) to California, including VISA's, equipment, accommodation, meals, ground transportation & entry fees, are estimated just short of R70 000.00 per person!
 
I am writing to you, in the hope that you would see the value of me attending such a prestigious event & that you would be able to help me financially, in ANY amount possible, allowing me to achieve my goal.
 
Please know that asking for help has never been a strong point of mine but I cannot do this without financial backing from yourselves.
 
In the meantime, I will be trying to raise money with my local community by selling my photography, as well as selling of unused surfboards & wetsuits & doing whatever I can!
 
I know that I have the potential to bring home the GOLD & would like nothing more than being on that podium, making my friends & family proud, knowing that I had the backing of yourselves, whilst being the No. 1 Para Surfer in the WORLD!!!
 
WHAT'S MORE!!!!
 
For EVERY donation of $10 (R200) received, will qualify you for a ticket to WIN Micheal February's Channel Islands surfboard shaped by Britt Merrick!!!!
(Terms & conditions apply)
