Hi, I'm Leigh-Anne. I'm a single mom to Tiaan who was born with mixed type cerebral palsy and is quadriplegic. He uses a wheelchair for mobility. I was working in an aftercare but had to leave because the day mother caring for Tiaan was not able to do so any longer due to his condition, and so I need to be home to look after him.
I would like to start a baking business from home to provide income to care for Tiaan and myself, but I need assistance in getting started with funds for baking utensils, packaging, and ingredients to get back on my feet.
I have also set myself a goal to do the Cape Town Cycle Tour in 2021 (if we are able to do so after lockdown). Tiaan has participated for the last 3 years with the Warrior On Wheels buggy teams and I aim to join him.
As such, my challenge to raise funds for my baking business will also be the start of my fitness journey towards my goal. I pledge to run/walk 2km per day for 21 days (not quite the distance of the cycle tour, but the distance of a marathon!)
A detailed list of the items needed and quotes regarding how the funds will be spent can be requested from [email protected]
[Warrior On Wheels Foundation will be administering the funds and purchasing of the items as well as assisting with management of some aspects to maximize sustainability of this initiative]
