Walking with Brandon

Brandon Beack is the most special guy you will ever hope to meet and this past Sunday I was lucky enough to spend the morning walking for his amazing cause.

Brandon and I trained at the same gymnastics club and almost two years ago he had an accident during training which left him paralysed from the chest down. Since that very moment he has done nothing but fight. I can’t believe how much he has progressed since the accident, he is stronger both mentally and physically and is capable of doing things the doctors told him he would never be able to do.

Brandon’s parents, Mark and Annette, have started the “Walking with Brandon” Fund and are currently raising money to go towards the Ekso suite which will help Brandon, and others like him, with balance, stamina and strength. The Walkathon was to help towards this cause. The suite allows Brandon to walk again, stimulating blood circulation and the muscles, it is amazing to see! Head over to their Facebook page to see updates and news on Brandon’s progress.

Thank you Mark, Annette and Brandon for having me there for this fun occasion :)
