My name is Toni Mould and I am 35 years old and I have been selected to represent South Africa at the 2019 UCI Para-Cycling Road World Championships.
I have a disability called Cerebral Palsy that affects all my muscle movements, including my balance and speech. But I haven't let my disability prevent me from chasing, and achieving, some big dreams.
I have been a member of the South African para-cycling team for the last 5 years. This year so far I have competed in the UCI Para-Cycling World Cups and finished 3rd in all the races that I started in. All South African paracyclists are self funded and therefore we have to raise our own funds. I need R80,000 to be able to travel with my assistant to Emmen, Netherlands from South Africa to compete.
After representing South Africa at two World Cups in 2015 and 2016, I won a silver medal at The World Championships in 2017. In 2018 I competed in the World Championships in Italy and finished fourth in the time trial and road race. My efforts on the bike during 2017 and 2018 have earned me several awards and nominations in the last 18 months. In 2017 I was a nominee at the SA Sports Awards. Last year I was nominated as Sportswoman of the Year with a Disability at the Winelands Sports Awards where I won the award. I was a nominee at the Western Cape Sports Awards and finally at the Gsports Awards in Johannesburg in the same category.
'I am her support cyclist that cycle behind her. Being up close and personal on the race track with Toni, I have firsthand experience and can testify in her ability to compete and be an inspiration to many other Paracyclist out there...... . You will not find a more motivated athlete to support financially like Toni. ' Anet Bosman - assistant, friend, and support cyclist.
All funds raised on this platform go directly to my cycling and my competitions.
