June 2017 Recipients
Hamilton North School student Bree Wharehoka, who suffers from a rare neurological disorder, has received a $4,827.70 grant towards a customised trike.
Bree has Rhett Syndrome which impacts on her development and means her movement is very limited.
She needs to use a wheelchair if she is going further than 200m and the trike will enable her to take part in physical activity that is crucial to her wellbeing.
The trike will allow Bree to work towards her goal of building up to 30 minutes of cumulative exercise a day. It will also enable Bree to participate in physical activity at both school and home.
