Hi, My name is Linley September, Centurion, Gauteng.
I am raising funds for Jumping Kids, which is an organization in need of financial assistance.
ABOUT JUMPING KIDS:
Technology has come a long way to enable amputees. Most young South Africans living with amputation are limited more by health policies and the high cost of prosthetic equipment than by their actual physical ability. At Jumping Kids, the dream is to provide affordable prosthetic solutions geared for optimum results while boosting awareness and advocating for change.
It is not enough to merely fit a child with a prosthetic. We believe access to the equipment should translate into access to better education and sport.
This is achieved by following a multi-disciplinary approach to ensure the children’s long-term reintegration as valuable members of society.
Jumping Kids Is Ability!
Being an athlete myself i want to give back to the sport that has given me a lot to be grateful for. Jumping Kids is an organization that give children a chance of living a "normal" life, going to a normal school where able bodied individuals go and to participate in sporting activities at club, provincial and ultimately at the Para Olympics. They are a Pretoria based organization and assist children from all walks of life. Some of these children have participated in the Para Olympics and have won medals at these events.
The funds raised will enable Jumping Kids to sponsor each child with new prosthetics , school uniforms, school clothes, school fees and books. This will enable them to have a good education as they attend sort after schools in Gauteng. I urge each one of you to support this worthy cause no matter how small your donation is. Every rand raised will be used for these children to realize their dreams.
Please help this worthy cause.
