Charlie was diagnosed at age 2 with high functioning autism where he already had a love for anything with wheels. When he was 2 and a 1/2 he asked to ride a bike with no training wheels. The very first time he tried, he took off. Within a month he was riding on a BMX track.
BMX is Charlies passion. It is what he wakes up for every single day. It is what calms him, makes him happy, and completes him.
Charlie is also homeschooled and BMX has been so amazing for him and his social skills are incredible thanks to the amazing people he (and we) have met along this journey.
Although Charlie (or any of us) have never been overseas, we have accepted the offer of Charlie to compete at the UCI BMX World Championships where his Dad, Luke, will go along with him. (what an incredible experience they will have to look back at)
The racing begins on June 3rd 2018 so we only have a very short time to get them there.
We are desperately hoping we can raise enough funds to help cover some of his accommodation and food expenses. We not only have flights to pay for but also entry fees, uniform fees, transport and insurance fees.
We would be forever grateful if you could donate even a small amount to help Charlie get to Baku. If you can not donate we would be just as grateful if you could please share to help us raise the funds.
