A Golf Wheelchair for my friend Robert

Hello everyone who’s reading this!

Our friend Robert (24) had an accident last June. He was working as a roofer that day, but unfortunately he fell 6 meters down. The moment after that he quickly realised that he did not feel his legs anymore. He had broken his back, his jaw and he had a paraplegia. He is paralyzed from his bellybutton. So therefore he needs to be in a wheelchair for the rest of his life. 

We, his friends, are of course with him since the beginning. We love our friend and we were really shocked when we’ve learned about the accident. We are planning to do a lot of cool stuff with Robert. Like going to parties or going to festivals. Just like we did before with him but now with a wheelchair. 

Before the accident Robert was taking lessons on how to golf. He liked it very much, that he already bought all the stuff he needed. But now he’s in a wheelchair therefore he can’t stand up anymore. And unfortunately he can’t play his favorite sport. 

We saw that Robert really loved golf and heard that there’s a special wheelchair for people who are paralyzed. We also heard that this specific wheelchair costs around 20.000 euro. That’s way too much for us as friends as well as for Robert.

Therefore we made this! A gofundme page specially for Robert! So he can achieve his dreams and still be able to play his favorite sport! 

We hope that anyone who reads this, will help with  our goal!
