The beautiful IGAB community funded a very special trike for Bailey back in 2011.
The photo of Bailey and his gorgeous sister Jasmine from back then (seen here on the right) has always been one of my favourite IGAB photos.
We are thrilled to see how he has grown into such a lovely young man – and even more thrilled to be able to help him on the next part of his journey.
Bailey is now 14 years old and a budding basketball star. Despite his Cerebral Palsy and right hand difference, Bailey has been playing basketball for 4 years now and it has become his absolute passion. Facing surgery that will stop him from playing normal basketball, Bailey is undeterred and is instead planning a future as an elite basketball wheelchair player instead! He’s already in a weekly team and has his eyes set on representing Australia at the Paralympics. Go Bailey!
Bailey is currently using a borrowed wheelchair for his weekly games but desperately needs his own customized chair to suit his physical needs in order to excel by practising daily to reach his goals. Wheelchair basketball will also maintain his cardiovascular, upper body and core strength fitness levels while being socially inclusive. We think that the kind of determination Bailey is showing should be rewarded so we’ve created this appeal to raise the $4,650 needed to get Bailey that chair.
