Last year my great nephew became a paraplegic in a mountain bike accident. I have been following his progress of recovery and have great admiration for his uncomplaining positive attitude towards “getting on with his new life”. Over this time I learnt the NZ Spinal Trust has played a big role in his recovery and I have become more aware of the multiple ways they support people with spinal injury.
I am planning to walk over 300 km of the Te Araroa Trail, from Kerikeri to Dome Valley over the month of March to raise funds for the NZ Spinal Trust.
Please support my appeal by making a donation and sharing my campaign to help more Kiwis like my great nephew navigate their way through the challenges that come from a spinal cord injury.
