Help Harrison raise more+ for the Make-A-Wish foundation
Posted on June 4, 2014
Harrison Wheatley is doing a stellar job of fundraising money to support the Make-A-Wish Foundation. Twelve year old Harrison was born with a congenital cervical spinal abnormality that resulted in 60 per cent of his spinal cord being crushed, leaving him mostly confined to a wheelchair. After having spent more than his fair share of time in hospital recovering from operations, Harrison has witnessed first hand the other kids around him that were less fortunate than him and decided to raise money for a charity close to his heart, that does amazing things assisting in granting the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength and joy.
Harrison is Craig Wheatley’s son from the team at evermore+ and he is courageously endeavouring to undertake the up and coming City2South fun run in Brisbane with the aid of his amazing Aunty Tracy who will push his wheelchair for most of the five kilometre route, however Harrison is determined to ditch his wheelchair and walk the final kilometre with the aid of only his sticks. He will be supported by his family as his cheer squad on the side lines as he has already proven he is an extremely determined young man who has achieved other sporting achievements in the state championships as a seated shotput and discus thrower. Having set his mind to achieve his fundraising goal we are sure Harrison will put in a great effort on race day to achieve his personal goal as well.
Harrison originally set out with a target to raise $500 and has now well and truly surpassed that goal, heading close to reaching $5000, which is a sensational effort, congratulations Harrison…
Best Wishes from the team at evermore+ and we hope Harrison keeps exceeding his goals for the City2South run on Sunday June 15th.
