Joss's New Hart Walker

$4,011 donated
Given by 59 generous donors in 9 weeks

With the support of the Lions Clubs we are raising money to help Joss stand proud and race to the finish line in a Hart Walker.

Wellington

Joss is a vibrant and engaged 7 year old boy with Cerebral Palsy. Born at 23 weeks and weighing in at 550 grams, Joss is truly a gift. As a result of his Cerebral Palsy Joss has significant gross motor disabilities effecting all 4 of his limbs and core function. This prevents him from standing, sitting, crawling and walking. Joss is intellectually bright, beautiful sunny and hilariously funny. Joss desperately wants to be with his able-bodied friends, kicking a ball, standing in line and needs the Hart Walker to "walk" among his peers. This equipment will aid him tremendously, not just with his freedom today but physically from now into his late teens.
