I’m 22 years old and love my family, my friends and my sport above all else! I have Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy but I don’t let it define me. I play electric wheelchair sports such as power rugby, power hockey and you might have heard of Powerchair football (PCF). It’s a modified version of the world game football.
Along with my teammates we went over to Sydney in January to compete at the Club Championship playing for the Perth Glory PCF team. Once again this September we will be travelling this time to Brisbane for the National Competition playing for WA PCF team.
Powerchair football has become a worldwide phenomenon. Last year the World Cup was held in Florida to which an Australian team was sent and ranked 4th in the competition.
As the sport grows and progresses in Australia it has become more competitive and fascinating to watch. With the use of Strikeforce wheelchairs players are able to move faster and with greater precision. Being low to the ground they are much safer to use.
The cost of the chairs are anywhere upwards of $10,000. With all the modifications that we need the cost can well exceed that amount.
As sport is my greatest passion I really want to strengthen my skills and abilities and to do that I really need a Strikeforce. Please help me to raise some much needed funds to put towards my new chair. Anything helps and I would be so grateful. Thank you
