11 yr old girl paralysed,,,sponsor me Last chance !!!

Postby dixie » Sat Feb 02, 2013 5:21 pm

ok my pals little 11 yr old niece has just been left paralysed from the neck down. this was due to having meningitis for the 2nd time.

to assist her in going home from hospital major changes need to be made to her home , so her equipment can be used in her home.
im not too clear on details but funds need to be raised.
so im cycling my fat knackered ass 30 miles with a group of "non =cyclers"

some of you will remember when i did a run of 23 miles for the autistic centre i worked at,.......and i thank you all again for your generosity.

im hoping to do the same kinda thing, but now im in no physical shape to do anything so gruelling.

please help.

i think the ride is set for the 18th feb

easiest way is to paypal me ( gift) to t_widget@hotmail.com marked " lottie rann fund"

i know its an odd way of giving, but im sure a million folks on msw will vouch im a genuine honest fella.

Show me a photo of you vomitting you breakfast over your handlebars and I'll send some money your way... Good effort mate.

I was trying to organise a ride from Galway to Dublin (approx 120 miles) to raise some money for the local school and also was going to ask you lot to chip in for Tim's charity. For a heap of reasons it's not happened but would still like to do something. My regular bike ride is 22 miles, I've done 40 a few times last summer, I could do 60 atm and feel like hell. So I reckon 2 days would be good.

Yeah, my knees scuppered. I smashed my right leg up pretty bad in a fight with a bus and a motorbike when I was 15. As a result my right leg is a few mm shorter than my left, and on top of years of footy, rugby, skateboarding, my knees ache after a while. Gutted as I used to love running. No can do any more so the bike's the way forward.

Not true if you gift aid it.

Sorry edited as they changed the way they do it from the last time I looked.
