Walking on broken glass

More

 

 

iMultiply are fundraising for Tree of Hope on behalf of our candidate's son Jack McNaughton who has Cerebral Palsy and requires further treatment to help him walk.

On Thursday 17th July, iMultiply are walking on broken glass!  Each member of the team will take it in turns to overcome their fear and take the brave steps across shards of broken glass. 

The team will be coached by Headstrong to walk across 6 feet of broken glass.

About Jack

Jack was diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy when he was 20 months old and sadly due to limited mobility endured pain on a daily basis.  In 2010 he had a life changing operation called Selective Dorsal Rhizotomy in St Louis Children's Hospital in Missouri - at that point his parents learned that Jack could walk unaided, in time.

After almost three years of hard work, vigorous training, multiple therapies and treatment centres, Jack is making real progress.

For Jack to realise his dream, he will require further surgery on his feet at the same hospital in Missouri.  His parents are hopeful that this can take place in November but need to raise funds to achieve this - the cost including all hospital fees, aftercare, travel requirements, casting, orthotics and medical insurance is £25,000!

 

The team at iMultiply are keen to raise funds to help Jack get the surgery he needs and are asking for your support.
