We are a local WWP family. Our daughter is 15years old and has mild cerebral palsy and is vision impaired (reduced visual field). Summer has achieved some amazing things in her life so far including a recent bronze medal for NSW in the Australian national all schools athletics championships in Adelaide in the u16 girls para long jump. Mucht of Summers Appetite to achieve her dreams is because of the amazing support we have received from the cerebral palsy alliance.
In February, as a family we will support Summer in one of her biggest challenges yet to climb to the top of Mount Kosciuszko. The challenge is an event to raise funds for the Cerebral Palsy Alliance to raise funds for their accessible gym and Fitness Program. The program promotes fitness, strength, and independence for people with cerebral palsy, and funds raised will be used at CPA facilities across Sydney, including their centre at Smalls Rd, Ryde where Summer has received support since she was 4years old.
Summer has set a fundraising goal of $5000 dollars and we would be really appreciative of any support from the Wentworth Point local community. We have brainstormed some ideas for fundraising and I am happy to approach local businesses, but was hoping there might be a contact I can speak with here that could help us with some advise and other suggestions.
