If you can support these boys in any way for Event #1 it would be greatly appreciated! They are taking donations directly to this fundraising campaign so if you found out about Craig Percival through The Wounded Pelicans and would like to make a donation we'd be truly grateful.

Thank You.

Why Support Craig's Family?

Craig Percival was tragically and suddenly taken away from his wife Lindell and two young children Sam and Sienna.  

Craig passed away on December 4th 2016, following post surgery complications after undergoing knee surgery a few weeks earlier.  A clot passed through to his lung causing respitory issues, triggering a severe heart attack, starving the brain of oxygen.  7 days after the heart attack, Craig's life support was switched off and his organs donated to recipients.

Craig dedicated his life to helping others. Not only his own athletes but anyone who needed his advice, guidance and support.

During March of 2016, Craig Percival completed 8 full distance Ironman triathlons, in 8 days, in 8 states and territories of Australia to raise over $80,000 for the John Maclean Foundation,  a foundation that helps kids in wheelchairs achieve their dreams.  

Watch the video documentary here - 

Self employed, Craig was the primary and sole income earner for his family, which means his family has been left with not much stability or certainty in their life.

So, after Craig dedicated his life to helping others, it's time to give back because Lindell, Sam and Sienna need our help.

Day to day living expenses:

 - Food
 - Rent
 - Utilities
 - Clothing
 - 2 x Children's Education
 - etc etc

Being self employed and living pay cheque to pay cheque means there isn't a big safety net, so we need to help Craig's family as much as possible to enable them time to not only grieve their loss but to get them to a point of being able to be self-sufficient. It could be weeks, months or even years....we just don't know.

The target is big and bold, but that's who Craig was and how Craig lived his life.

Didn't know the man personally but know someone who did very well. Just thought I would help out a little. Too many good people get taken away far too early in life.
