ZAR1,562.00Donated So Far
On the 7th July 2014 after a game of paintball, I was called to work on a Sunday evening. Due a shortage of labourers, I decided to work long grueling hours in order to catch up on work that was delayed. During the time I was working, I was caught in an accident when a 2ton steel frame fell off a forklift and onto both my legs completely crushing my right leg. A miracle that my left leg escaped with as little as a sprained ankle. Due to the severity of my injury and losing half of my body’s blood the Doctor at St. Augustine’s hospital had decided that my leg needed to be amputated due to severe damage and blood loss.
I lost my hopes of ever playing sports again.
As time passed I have realized no matter what, there is always a way if I am willing and so I have decided to start a campaign in the hopes of raising funds towards my goal of competing in a fully fledge jiu-jitsu tournament as an amputee.
Unfortunately I am not capable of affording the Gi's necessary to compete. This is why I have started this fund raiser. My goal is to compete at the 2020 ABU DHABI WORLD JIU JITSU FESTIVAL & PARAJIU-JITSU.
For corporate sponsors looking to sponsor me, feel free to contact myself or my promoter via email.
Thank you Kindly, I appreciate all the help.
It's me in the green, sorry for the funny face. lol. :)
