Wanna Help A Wheelchair Fencer Compete?

Hey, let’s help this girl out!  Even if you aren’t in a position to contribute, can you help signal-boost?

Help to send Luticha to her first fencing competition!

From the campaign:

Luticha is a dreamer, a doer and a do-gooder who believes in our community and herself! Now is our chance to give back to her. She spends her time advocating for people of all abilities: finding accessible hangouts, helping businesses embrace ADA policies and raising awareness for inclusive fun like Rochester Rehabilitation’s SportsNet.

Luticha is a student, a volunteer, a rockstar and a volcano climber – and she does it all from a seated position. Let’s help her add fencing champion to that list. Your contribution today will help Luticha buy the adaptive gear she needs and pay the registration and hotel fees for a fencing competition in April.

Twice a week, Luticha has been practicing the sport of sword fighting through SportsNet’s Wheelchair Fencing program in partnership with Rochester Fencing Club. SportsNet offers adaptive sports and inclusive recreation opportunities for people of all abilities. Luticha hopes that she can continue to raise awareness for this Rochester-based program that has made it possible for her to have quality sporting experiences and realize her dream of taking over the world – one sword at a time.
