Supporting a para- athlete

Abigail has a rare form of Dwarfism called Hypochrondroplasia. Having been badly bullied both physically and verbally she found sport, to her surprise having never tried she found herself quite good at it. Over the years she has honed her skills and concertraited on the disaplines of Shot and Discus with the occassional Javelin. In 2016 Abi under went UK national classification and become a future para athlete, she is aiming for a place in the 2024Paralympic GB team.
Abi Has to travel for Competitions as Para Athletic Events rarely happen in the southwest . However living in such a rural part of Cornwall attending competitions are expensive and can be long journeys (basically we have a 2 hour drive just to reach the Motorway network at Exeter). By making a donation your contributions will help fund Abigails travel and at times overnight accomodation. Unfortutatly Abigail has no sponsership or franchise to support her and with thanks to the PIP reforms we will now also be needing a new form of transport in order to compete in such events. Abi now holds an International  license to compete in Europe and around the world, despite having UK Classification  she will be hoping to get a confirmed international classification from The International Paralympics Committee (IPC) in the next 18 months when she turns 18.

Once again your support would mean so much to Abigail and her Family. Thank you for stopping by.
