  Auckland Special Travel Technology Awareness

You want to make a difference. I know this because I believe every person wants to make a difference – I know I do! I’m sure you come across people every day who walk around with ease, enjoying life without a physical hindrance. However, there are people all over New Zealand and throughout the Pacific Islands, including myself, who struggle with this most simple of tasks – walking. I was born with Cerebral Palsy, a condition that affects my gross and fine motor skills such as walking and causes spasticity and imbalance, but I never let that stop me.

My journey, Jordon’s Climb for Awareness, started with a dream at 3am, and soon became a life goal – to help young people living with disabilities in the Pacific Islands and raise disability awareness, all by climbing the world’s tallest towers.

Reaching for great heights

You could say I’ve got a habit of conquering goals, having done so since I was young. However, I set myself my biggest challenge so far when I decided to climb the 1029 steps of Auckland’s SkyTower. That set off a chain of achievements, including:

• Conquering Melbourne’s Eureka Tower’s 1800 steps in 2012

• Climbing the Auckland Harbour Bridge for World Cerebral Palsy Day 2013

• Donating 16 rugged wheelchairs to young people in Samoa

• 8 more towers have been conquered- over 42,000 steps in total.

• Gaining over 21,000 supporters worldwide on my Jordon’s Climb for Awareness Facebook page

2017 is set to be a hugely exciting year, with the Empire State building run up already planned taller than before. This once in a life time opportunity will see me climb the most famous building in the world. King Kong type climb. Breaking records and stereotypes with every steps.

I have been working and saving the little income I can, however this trip will cost about $12,234 (yes, I did the numbers), this includes airfares, a support teams, $3,000 donation for CAF and to buy more wheelchairs of course.

I’m seeking any amount, small or big… this climb is my dream come true.

I am truly grateful for your support.

Thanks

Jordon Milroy
