Thank you to those who have already donated to my True Grit run for The Ability Centre.
For those who’ve not yet read, I am running the True Grit Commando-style obstacle course on October 29 and am using the occasion to raise funds for The Ability Centre. My daughter, now aged over 11 years old, has been a client of their services for most of her life.
I was just there today with my daughter Alyssa, trialling a new walking frame to assist in her walking and getting about for longer distances, while being able to “carry” something with the frame. The time and care that the staff put in is wonderful. They had to put up with Alyssa complaining about being asked to try the new equipment, yet managed to get her into a decent mood about it!
I’m hoping to raise at least $1500 for the Centre and in the 2 and a bit weeks since I announced the fundraising, we’ve received almost half of that amount. Thank you to everyone who has donated and to those who have shared the fundraising posts or page. Sharing the information is just as important as donating, as someone else may be in a position or have the desire to give to this cause too. The beauty of a fundraising site like everydayhero is that your donations are immediately sent straight through to the recipient – in this case, The Ability Centre (for Cerebral Palsy) in Perth, Western Australia – so I don’t see or handle a cent of it, it just goes straight through.
I’ll keep posting to this blog and to the everydayhero site for progress updates and will, of course, share pics from the event in due course.
Thank you for your support!
