Help Joshua to Nottwil  Para Athletic Championships 2019

Help Joshua to Nottwil Para Athletic Championships 2019

Personal message

My name is Joshua van Staden. I am 18 years old. I live in Cape Town Western Cape. I have been diagnosed with Dwarfism. There are 200 types of dwarfism and I was born with Achondroplasia. Which means I have bowed legs, shorts arms, curved back and a prominent forehead.

The aim of this fundraiser is to help me compete as a national athlete from South Africa. It is my dream to represent my country at this prestigious event.  I was chosen to represent South Africa at this year’s Notwill 2019 World Para Athletics Junior Championships to be held between
28th July 2019 to 05th August 2019.

At the Toyota 2019 National Games of South Africa, I competed in shot put and discus and Javelin. I was 23 cm away from the African Record in Shot Put without the correct shoes I still managed to be selected to host South Africa At the Junior World Para Athletics Championships.

I need to reach half of my target by the 14th of May 2019 and the full paid target should be paid in on the 28th of June. Without the 50% paid I won't be able to represent South Africa at this prestigious event.

The funds will cover the following
R35 000 For the flights, insurance and accommodation
R3 000 for the on field South African Clothing
R2 000 For the off field South African Clothing

With these funds it will make my dream come true from a young age I always I wanted to represent my country at the Para Olympics.

*Funds raised will be transferred directly to WC Sports Association for the Physically Disabled*
