A Chair Of My Own

So I’ve been using the Advance Mobility stroller for the past few weeks, and while I am grateful for it, there are two issues with the trial chair I’ve been using. The first is obvious – it isn’t mine! The chair I’ve been using is one of myTeam Triumph’s chairs, and  needs to be available for other athletes to use on a regular basis for races and training runs, so we can’t hold onto it. The second is that it lacks the support I would need to spend extended periods of time in it – the trial chair would create problems with my back and neck muscles, and increase my fatigue levels.

So we talked with the folks at myTeam Triumph and discovered that there was another option – a chair of my own that would make it safe and feasible for me to participate in the training runs and races on an on-going basis. However, it turns out that like everything else in our life right now, we can’t do this alone.

The chair will cost $7500 CDN – Will you help us make this dream a reality?

This chair offers me an opportunity to get out and be part of community again.

This chair offers Trevor and I a chance to dream new dreams in the face of all that has changed in our lives.

And who knows where the journey will take us from here?
