I haven’t posted a lot since the climbing competition. Once we got home and got ADNZ Ben sorted out, I crashed and have been having a few health issues.
I have broken my Climbing NZ Paraclimbing Competition weekend into a series of blogs. This is Part I: Getting to Auckland.
This was my Second Qualification round at the Climbing NZ Lead Climbing Championships. This is the qualifier I fell off. From watching this I think I rushed slightly, didn’t double check my foot placement and when I went to load up my left leg my foot rolled off the hold.
Please bare with me, I didn’t get the rest and recovery I expected to after the competition, so I will be posting pics and my thoughts over the next few days!
Wow what a weekend!
On the 19th and 20th of August the Climbing NZ National Lead Championships was held at Extreme Edge, Glen Eden. This year was the first time that Para/Adaptive climbers participated in an offical Climbing NZ event.
Yep, as usual I’m busy!
On Saturday I spent the day raising money for Assistance Dogs New Zealand Trust outside Pak ‘N’ Save, Palmerston North. I had a great but tiring day talking to people about the role ADNZ Ben plays in my life and how some of the other amazing dogs are changing lives for New Zealand families. Once again I am humbled by the generosity of Palmy Nth.
Its that time of year again, where those of us with Assistance Dogs NZ Trust Dogs get out and raise some funds to help other New Zealanders have better lives with the help of these amazing dogs.
If you can spend a few hours tomorrow or Saturday please get in touch with Wendy at the above numbers, we’d love to hear from you. Some of the sites around the country may not run because we don’t have enough people to help out. It takes a huge amount of time and money to get these dogs ready and out to families and we can’t do it without your help!
|Climbed so hard, my hands were shaking!|
Just a quick note to let those in the Mid Central region that there is going to be a Disabled Person’s meeting on Tues the 25th July from 10 am till 12 noon at the Easie Living center on Main St. Just a bit of a get together to discuss the upcoming Enabling Good Lives forum on August 1st. This should give some clear direction as to what the community wants to see in their Leadership Group before heading in to the EGL forum.
Be good to see you there!
