Replacement of Stolen Running legs

Raised by 31 people in 49 months
Hi friends, family and supporters,

I have some terrible news whilst competing at the IPC grand Prix in Arizona, USA today, both my running legs where STOLEN!.

I am a Paralympian, Current world record holder in long jump, and current world champion, preparing for the RIO Paralympics.

As time is of the essence I need to get onto a new set of legs as fast as possible, to be able to do this I ask for your support.

As many may not know the cost of a prosthetic running leg is expensive, a single knee unit alone cost 5300€ and I need two of them, add in the feet, the sockets, adaptors and all the miscellaneous parts, including spikes for the bottom of the blades, the tubes and connect the legs to the socket and to the feet, it all adds up, fast. a total of 35000€ I believe will be enough to cover these costs.  

IF there are any remaing funds, I will dontate it to the Never say never fundation,which helps kids make there way back into sport.

If you can spare a few Euro towards helping me get back to training, I will be extremely grateful, If you can’t, I can understand, but please pass this on, share with you friend and family on social media.


Thanks for your support, and becoming a significate part of my journey to RIO 2016 Paralympics

---- this page was originally set up to help purchase a spare pair of running blades for Rio, however with what has happened today,  priorities have changed, the end goal remains the same----
