23rd Anniversary Challenge

Walking 150k along the Peddars Way & Norfolk Coastal Path to fund a new 'off-road' wheelchair for Stacie

 

Stacie has been given limited time to enjoy the rest of her life. This was a chance to allow Stacie gain some of her life back and inspire others along the way with her stories of ‘Stacie on the roads. Via crowdfunding we quickly went through our initial target, raising £11,000 with a further £350 to Special Olympics Norfolk.

£11,000 Raised

 

The money has been used to buy three Mountain Trike wheelchairs that will be lent out, free of charge, to other people in Stacie's position.

22nd ANNIVERSARY GAMES

Competing in the Transplant Games in aid of Special Olympics Norfolk

 

I have spent a large part of my free time volunteering with adults who have learning disabilities as it shows me that any obstacle can be overcome with just a little help. So to honour my donor and to help those people that inspire me so much I will be competing at the British Transplant Games in Liverpool. It's been nearly 20 years since I last competed and as yet I've never won a medal.

20th ANNIVERSARY WALK

Memorial walk through Dovedale

 

I already had in my mind where I wanted to leave my flowers, and it's something I hope could become an annual event with other transplantees or donor families joining me. I already had in my mind where I wanted to leave my flowers, and it's something I hope could become an annual event with other transplantees or donor families joining me. 20 years had passed and it finally felt like I had found a place to be a peace with my donor.
