EPIC swimmer Jacob is raising £5000 to buy 10 sports wheelchairs for his school. We’ve donated £530 from EPIC KIDZ to buy the first chair. You can read more about the project below, in the words of Jacob himself.
My name is Jacob, I’m 13 years old and this summer i will be taking part in the Epic Swim Series. I decide to do this because I wanted to show that anybody can do sport if they have the right attitude. I have a connective tissue disorder called Ehlers Danlos Syndrome Hypermobility Type and sometimes find it difficult to do sport. I am hoping to raise money for my school to buy 10 multisports wheelchairs so that everyone can take an active part in sport at school. I enjoy swimming and I am looking forward to doing the challenge.
