In 2013 our son, Sam, was involved in a motorcycle accident with the outcome of him becoming a paraplegic.
Since the accident, he has found the resilience, the mental strength, and the endurance to achieve career and sporting accomplishments that would never have been a part of his ‘able-bodied’ life.
Sam started skiing 4 months after his accident and instantly loved being back on the snow and skiing. He has been competing with other sit-skiers in Europe and has qualified for the World Cup Finals in February 2018. He has done incredibly well for his first year on the World Cup circuit. We are very happy and excited that he has been selected to join the Australian Paralympic Team to compete in Korea March 2018.
Sam has launched a GoFundMe campaign to generate some funds to help him with his travel expenses. We would appreciate any assistance to help him with his dream.
