11 Jun Joshua
Variety, the Children’s Charity of Manitoba, in partnership with Cerebral Palsy Manitoba, helped Joshua get a new sport wheelchair.
No person is more proud of Joshua than her mother, who lovingly writes:
“My son, Joshua, was diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy at 16 months. Although unexpected, our wonderful doctor assured us that Joshua’s disability would make us stronger as a family and he would learn to adapt.
Four years ago, at the invitation of a peer, Joshua decided to try wheelchair basketball. He instantly fell in love with the sport and with training and determination he has demonstrated an ability to play at a high level.
Joshua has been invited to numerous camps and tournaments across Canada and played for Team Manitoba in the 2015 Canada Games.”
With his new wheelchair, Joshua can now pursue a career in competitive wheelchair basketball and fulfill his dreams of one day playing on the Canadian National team at the Olympics.
