Hi, My name is Azzie. I'm a 23 year old from Auckland New Zealand

My goal is to raise money to buy a hand powered mountain bike!

Having to use a wheelchair doesn't stop me from doing most things.  Recently I went skydiving, scuba diving, and drove around New Zealand in my hand controlled car on an epic road trip. BUT the wheelchair does stop me from being able to go to certain places like the beach, and in the bush. I have found an off road handcycle that will enable me to get to these places, and also to go mountain biking with my friends and work on my own fitness. 

I have a very rare condition called GAN that causes my legs to be very weak meaning I need to use a wheelchair to get around.  At the moment there is no known cure but thanks to Hannahs Hope Fund - http://www.hannahshopefund.org/ I am currently taking part in clinical trials in America to find one. 

Hannah's Hope Fund relies on donations. When I get the bike I plan to use it to fundraise to help with my participation in the clinical trials.

The bike is from Poland and has been specifically designed for people in wheelchairs. Here is a link to the website where I found this amazing bike. http://www.offroadhandcycle.com/#!explorer/c1535.
