Finn Richardson Adventure Fund
Project 2018-09-15 16:01:45 +1200
Finn Richardson is a 17 year old from Nelson who suffered a serious spinal cord injury after a mountain biking accident in early September. He has a long recovery ahead of him and will be spending the next four months in the Spinal Unit (Burwood Hospital) in Christchurch. He is currently being treated as a paraplegic.
What will funds be used for?
We are setting up an 'Adventure Fund' to help Finn get back into adventuring during his recovery period and beyond. The goal is to raise a chunk of cash through a couple of different fundraising campaigns, to be set aside specifically to get Finn back into adventures. Having adventure goals to work towards during his rehabilitation will be motivational. Funds could be used to subsidise adaptive sports equipment, travel to sporting events or for an overseas adventure, additional resources to have him involved in Outdoor Education at school and anything else that helps him to maintain an active, outdoorsy lifestyle.
Please email [email protected] if you have a product or service you would like to donate to this fundraiser. This campaign will be running until 1st November. Ideas include 2 nights in a bach, a food voucher or an adventure experience. Be creative....every little bit adds up!
