Kids on board!!!

Max & Amy's classes are doing sponsored events to raise funds for Spinal Research. I went to school yesterday to talk to the kids about spinal cord injuries, paralysis and the need to help find a cure. They were all brilliant and all of them said they will raise at least $50 - if that happens, that will take me over the 10,000 target - it will be great if the kids are the ones to get me across the line!

I heard from one of the mums to say her son was very moved and impacted. Very special to hear that

Big progress

A couple of weeks ago I saw someone at the gym doing Bosu squats. I remember watching them, recalling how I did that exercise pre accident and wondering when I might do it again - if ever. On Tuesday, I got my answer! I can't describe how good this felt. I'm still excited days later! Added to that, I made great progress on sit ups - WITH a medicine ball! - and did some good work on the punch bag (which seems to be helping release upper body tightness). Really happy!!!
