Hi Everyone,
I have started this request for help on the second anniversary of Sean's survival from Shark attack.
On the 2nd of October 2014 Sean was mauled by 2 Great White Sharks and subsequently lost both his upper limbs.
He has always been a keen, talented and determined athlete and this past winter, Sean has been involved with the Winter Paralympics develop squad . He has excelled in snowboarding and this has led to an invitation to participate in elete level events across the world.
The funds raised will be used for flights, accomadation and equipment to enable Sean the opportunity to compete in events that will lead into the 2018 Winter Paralympics.
Thankyou for taking the time to consider this request and any help will be greatly appreciated.
Here's to the chance for Sean to bring gold home for Australia.

Hey all,
Exciting times ahead. This week The Olympic Committee announced Sean's selection in the 2018 Winter Paralympics.
We can not thankyou enough for your support in helping make this happen.
Sean is off to Japan tomorrow for the final training camp before the Opening Ceremony on the 9th of March.
He is in two events, Snowboard Cross and Banked Slalom. Race dates are the 12th March and 16th March.
Once again, thankyou very much for your support. Not only has it helped with costs, it has also increased Sean's determination to do well.
There are 5 Family members and 2 good mates heading over as his cheer squad. I have sourced the Boxing Kangaroo flag so keep an eye on the crowd too.
Happy days everyone. No matter the outcome, he is already a Winner

Kindest Regards
