My name is Toni Mould, 35, and I am a South African paracyclist. I have a disability called Cerebral Palsy caused by complications during the birth process. My CP which affects my balance, speech, and all my motor skills.
Cycling has become a vital aspect of my life, not only giving me a chance to travel and compete at the highest level of the sport, but also to stay healthy and keep my muscles, joints, and organs strong increasing my general health and well-being.
Paracyclists in South Africa have to be self-funded due to the lack of funding from the government and a lack of corporate sponsors that invest in SA para-athletes. Funds raised through this campaign will be used for my training and competition expenses both in South Africa and in Europe in 2020. Donations given on this platform will enable me to train and compete in competitions. Due to my disability, I cannot drive myself to the gym so I use Uber or lifts from friends and have to take a friend as an assistant on all my competition trips to help me with daily tasks. These are some of the reasons why it is so expensive for me to compete.
Since starting paracycling in 2013 my general health and strength have improved and by contributing to this campaign you are not only investing in my cycling, but also in keeping me healthy and active.

Cycling SA Racing License - R450.00 per year (Covered & Paid)
