Help Marco to walk again

Help Marco to walk again

Personal message

I am inspired to raise funds for Marco Pietrowski. Marco's life changed in an instant - from fitness model and personal trainer,  to an incomplete quadriplegic. Marco was a passenger (with his seatbelt on) in a car that lost control and rolled down Camps Bay drive 8 years ago. 

Marco is one of the most positive and upbeat persons I have met. He never blames, he never feels sorry for himself, he never loses sight of his goal to walk. 

Marco has grit and has faced obstacle after obstacle and he never gives up. 

Marco cannot work and Covid-19 has depleted his funds. He desperately needs to have therapy at "The Walking with Brandon Foundation" based in Cape Town. He need to go for therapy twice a week for 24 months to rebuild his body.

Marco has 2 objectives:
1) He wants to walk unaided and reabilitate his body
2) He wants to be financially independent

Please help Marco to get to therapy and walk again so he can earn a living and support himself.

Reaching my target means that Marco will be able to get the therapy he needs. 2 years of constant training will strengthen his body to the point where he can be independent and be able to create a living for himself. He needs a hand-up at the moment, not for life. 

This will make an immense difference in Marco's life and allow him to continue to motivate and inspire others. 

This is Marco's mantra that he repeats over and over in his head when he trains:

"I am Marco Pietrowski and I am damn determined to walk again".

The funds will be paid directly to "The Walking with Brandon Foundation. They are sponsoring him as well and the funds will pay the balance of the weekly sessions. Marco also needs specialized equipment from time to time.

 

*As per the campaign creator's request, funds raised will be paid directly to The Walking with Brandon Foundation*
