Leg It For Freddie!
Weʼre raising £2,000 to Help support a young man called Freddie Wright who suffered a stroke at the age of 5, we are raising funds for a slim sock. UR Potential are fundraising for a young man called Freddie, Freddie suffered a stroke at age 5 back in 2010 as a result of Chicken Pox’s. He was left with left side paralysis and has taught himself to walk, talk and keep up with some of his peers at the mainstream school. This slim sock with an electrical pulse is similar to wearing a sports sock but gives greater movement than the brace and makes walking 50% easier.
The family have been to the NHS and Freddie has tried one on and his walking was fantastic. They have recently been rejected by the NHS due to lack of funding and while this is going to appeal they have been told that if they want one of these then they would have to pay. They are currently around £2000 for the sock and custom fitting. Over the next few months Friend and volunteers will be taking part in many events to raise money for Freddie, they will be taking part in swims, triathlons, walks and a Guinness world record attempt.
