Jaden Movold, an aspiring Paralympian and record-holding wheelchair racer, seeks funding to compete internationally with the world's best.

Auckland

Dear Supporter,

I am a 19-year-old para-athlete who was born with the most severe form of Spina Bifida. Despite many challenges, including 32 major surgeries, my pursuit of sports excellence has always been integral to me.

As the world's #1 wheelchair racer in the U20 5000m T54 category, I've set national records, gained international podium finishes, and demonstrated my potential against the world's best. My ultimate goal is to represent New Zealand at the 2028 Paralympic Games in Los Angeles. To achieve this, I must compete internationally, challenge top athletes, and qualify for major events before 2028.

My self-financed participation in the 2023 Summer Down Under Wheelchair Racing Series (Australia) and the World Para Athletics (WPA) Grand Prix (Switzerland) is just the beginning. However, the journey ahead, including crucial meets such as the WPA Grand Prix Series events (Dubai, Nottwil, Paris) and international training camps in 2024, demands more than I can shoulder alone.

Your support is essential for these international endeavours. You're backing not just an athlete but a symbol of perseverance, ambition, and inclusivity. I promise to share every milestone and triumph with you, as you will be a crucial part of my journey.

Your contribution goes beyond supporting my ambitions; it inspires others who see themselves in my story. Thank you for considering to be a part of this journey, where we can make dreams a reality together.

With gratitude and determination,

Jaden Movold

Use of funds

Wheeling Across Continents: A Month Marked by Racing Success and Gratitude Across the Globe! 🌎🏆  15 February 2024

What an amazing month it's been! 🌟

I want to extend my heartfelt gratitude to each one of you for your support throughout my journey to become the best global wheelchair racer and create a positive impact in my community. 🙏

Over the past month, I had the privilege of spending 10 days in Australia, taking part in the Summer Down Under Wheelchair Racing Series and the Canberra Straight Champs. Shortly after, I jetted off to the United Arab Emirates, competing in two World Para Athletics meets: the Sharjah 12th International Open Athletics Meeting and the 1st International Khorfakkan Meeting. 🌍🏎️

These four competitions offered me the chance to train, race, and gain valuable insights from some of the world's top wheelchair racers. The experience drove home a vital lesson – to be the best, you must compete against the best. It was an incredible journey filled with learning and enjoyment. 🚀 Hailing from a country with limited wheelchair racers and support, these trips allowed me to absorb knowledge from top coaches and athletes worldwide. The tips and tricks I gathered have paved the way for an exciting couple of months of training, with clear goals for improvement. 💪🎓

I'm gearing up for a thrilling year ahead, packed with more trips and competitions, both in New Zealand and across the globe. 🌏🏆
