Physio student selected to swim for GB at Cerebral Palsy World Games

Fabs Andre

Congratulations to Fabienne, or Fabs, Andre who has been selected to swim for Great Britain at the 2018 Cerebral Palsy World Games in Spain in August. 

There is no central funding for the Games, so athletes have to self-fund to cover the costs of training, accommodation, travel and fees.  This means second year physiotherapy student Fabienne must raise £2,000 to join the Team GB squad this summer.

Fabienne. who has been swimming competitively since she was 16, said: "It is a huge honour and comes after years of dedicated training and balancing studies with the early starts and late finishes required by swimmers.

"I have always focused on what I can do, rather than what I can’t, and currently I can represent Great Britain at a World Games competition, if I can raise the funds, so I will be genuinely grateful for anything you can give.

"Thank you for your support. Whoever you are, from whichever of the communities that I am a part of, thank you for helping me to achieve my dream. I hope to make you proud.”

So far, Fabs has raised two-thirds of her target, you can support her through her crowdfunding page here.
