Bailey has been part of Cerebral Palsy Alliance for most of his life and can’t wait to take up the challenge of the Krazy Kosci Klimb! Here’s Bailey’s story in his own words:
I am 15 years old and ever since I heard of the Krazy Kosci Klimb I have been so keen to get into it for this new challenge to conquer.
I struggle with having CP as it makes me different from others. I have low muscle tone, which basically means that it is harder for me to do things with my body. but I can still do everyday things and it doesn’t stop me doing the things I love.
I have been part of Cerebral Palsy Alliance for most of my life since I got diagnosed with it, my brother has CP as well. I have 4 siblings and live with my mum on weekdays and dad on weekends.
I love school so much mainly because I get to see my mates but also because I love having something to do. My most memorable achievement is an academic award that I received. I hope to become a mechanical engineer one day and create something crazy and never before seen.
I want to participate in the Kosci Klimb because I like setting challenges then completing them. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity for me to really challenge myself. I will be preparing for the day by doing a wide range of different cardio and training to make sure I’m ready. I also do regular physio.
If I could give one message to a person that’s reading this right now it’s this:
"Don’t let things stop you and try new things. I have my difficulties but it doesn’t let me stop myself from doing things that I love and want to do."
