Erica’s Brave Hearts

Writen by: on August 16, 2012

On Sunday the 12th August the team at Financing Hope and friends completed the 14km City 2 Surf event for Erica’s Brave Hearts.[

We had the honour of raising money for the inspirational Erica Savy-Ward. Erica is a quadruple amputee who has inspired me personally. The simple tasks that we take for granted each day are now major achievements for Erica.

We will be competing in the City 2 Surf every year for Erica. This year the money raised will go towards the purchase of her left bionic arm.

Saying that I feel proud to be able to help someone like Erica in a small way is an understatement. Erica has given me a new perspective on my own life and appreciation for what I have and enjoying each day. I think of her each and everyday.

I hope that by sharing Erica’s story more people can be inspired by her, in the same way I am.

Please feel free to join the teams facebook page where Erica herself blogs comments.!/groups/245782365529850/

I want to thank Erica for letting us into her life and keeping us motivated. You are a very special lady Erica and I look forward to sharing and helping you over many years to come.
