11-year-old Avalon is known – in her mum’s words – as a “total butt kicker!”. Largely because she’s full of life and rises to every challenge.
Avalon is a fun-loving girl with a huge belly laugh who loves school, writing, playing Roblox, wheelchair sports camp, and is inspired by music. Disney movie The Descendants resonate with Avalon, with their message “to truly embrace who you are no matter what! People did not expect much from them. Instead, they showed how to be kind and caring and to never judge a book by its cover.”
Avalon’s greatest achievement is taking her first steps. She’s thrilled to have the opportunity to tackle the ultimate challenge – the Krazy Kosci Klimb. She can't wait to make a difference and give back to Cerebral Palsy Alliance who have supported her since she was one year old. Mum Kristie describes Avalon as her ‘miracle baby’. Avalon was born 10 weeks premature with a deadly infection, which resulted in a bilateral brain injury and a diagnosis of Spastic triplegia cerebral palsy.
Avalon continues to defy all odds and is already in training by walking around her local park, motivated by her playlist; The Descendants soundtrack, Justin Bieber and Martin Garrix. She can’t wait to cross the finish line at Kosci and have heaps of fun along the way!
“Never stop chasing your dreams, because you never know, they might just come true.” Avalon
