Kaiden's Wheelchair Basketball

My name is Kaiden Cole, I am 16 years old and a sophomore at South Haven High School.  I am a varsity swimmer and a basketball player.  I dream of going to college to be a nurse and I am hoping to get a scholarship with my grades and my basketball.  Oh, and something else about me,  I have Spina Bifida and Hydrocephalus and am confined to a wheelchair.  This does not define who I am!  I play wheelchair basketball and I love it!  I hope to one day participate in the Paralympic games.  I was recently invited to apply to the USA Developmental camp at the Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs, Colorado but that is very expensive. and the camp is coming soon.

I am asking for financial help in pursuing my dreams.  Having help will get me the equipment I need and the training to help me progress. It will also allow me to attend practices, tournaments and camps across the country.   My parents are constantly searching for grants and scholarships to help but we need just a little more to make reaching my dreams a reality.  With your help, I can be a role model, not only for other disabled kids but other girls in general.  I hope to utilize my sports to help me get the education I need to become a nurse and to help other kids like me!  I would greatly appreciate any help that you can give.  I will keep my activities and progress on Facebook for everyone to watch.  Thank you for your consideration,
