Sandra Poff

Rorie Poff from Christchurch, who suffers from Severe Haemophilia and Cerebral Palsy, received $2,414 funding to purchase a trike to assist with his movement.

The new trike will be Rorie’s main form of transport and is specially designed for him to improve his coordination and remove pain in his knees and joints, which are a side effect of his condition.

Rorie currently works with Parefed Christchurch in a swimming development squad, and aspires to one day compete in the Paralympics.
