Since losing his leg from a spider bite, Justin’s love of archery and his skill has won him a place at the 2019 World Championships in the Netherlands in May/June 2019. This is the qualifying event for the 2020 Paralympic Games in Japan.
Your donation will help to cover his travels costs from Johannesburg to Amsterdam and much-needed sporting equipment and make Justin’s dream to represent South Africa and to qualify for the 2020 Paralympic Games in Japan come true!
Regarding the costs and where the donations will be spent, SANAA is organising the travel to the games, food, and accommodation so funds raised will be paid towards them first to cover the trip expenses.
Justin needs to take spare sports equipment in case of breakage otherwise he would be out of the games if anything were to break while he was there.
The sports equipment costing works out as follows: Arrows R8,500, arrow rest R3,800, peep sight kit R2,500. A spare bow R25,000 and sight and scope costs an additional R14,000. Justin feels it’s just too much to ask for this as well so he is trying to keep his donation requirements as low as possible. Yet if his bow was damaged during his travels he would not be able to attend the Games. If he exceeds his target, all extra funds raised will go towards this equipment.
*Funds will go directly to SANAA*
