Latvian ex athlete at ProjectWalk

hey everyone,
my name is Gustavs.  i'm 19 years young guy from Latvia.  Two years ago, i was into profesional BMX racing,  i was admitted on Latvian olympic team as new hope for 2016 olympic games. But month later i got seriously injured. i broke my neck and now i'm using wheelchair every day.

but i haven't lost my fighter spirit, regular phsyiotherapies, dumbells, standind in special devices and last summer i got into handcycling, so 2 wheels i changed to three wheels few months later competed my first 10k marathon.

as my phsyiotherapist said, the best possible rehabilitation is "PROJECT WALK'' and it's aviable in USA.
it's totaly different from europe. 

so, this summer i'm planing to  attend this center for one month in Carlsbad, CA and see how much better can i get there.

as i need asistance for almost everything, i'm going there together with my girlfriend and with one of my best friend.

estimated costs for everything together is huge, flight tickets, living there, car rental and ''project walk'' center.

so, i'm asking for your help to fulfill two of my dreams, to see USA and visit ''PROJECT WALK''.
if i could cover costs for ''PROJECT WALK'' with your help, that would mean a lot to me and i would get one step closer to bring my dreams to reality.

with lots of love from Latvia,
