A demanding 18km hike to the top of Mount Kosciuszko may seem daunting to many, but for Sea Eagles supporter Zane Zofrea, this remarkable teenager has already overcome some of life's difficult challenges.
The 14-year-old from the Northern Beaches will be the inspirational leader of ‘Team Zane’ in this weekend’s Krazy Kosci Klimb, one of Cerebral Palsy Alliance’s (CPA) most unique events which challenges young people living with cerebral palsy or other disabilities to reach a goal they may never have believed they could.
From a young age, Zane experienced significant physical, verbal, spacial and intellectual disabilities without a proper diagnosis, meaning he couldn't access various disability support systems. He has been supported by CPA since the age of seven.
With a Manly Sea Eagles theme behind ‘Team Zane, Zane and his team of nine will cover 18.4kms, starting from Charlotte Pass, walking their way along the summit track to the top of Mount Kosciuszko before returning back to Charlotte Pass.
Sea Eagles proud to rally behind Team Zane
Zane and members of his team, including his Mum, Anne-Maree, were special guests at Sea Eagles headquarters this morning where they were presented with a signed Manly jersey by Captain Daly Cherry-Evans to help with their fundraising.
Over the past six years, Krazy Kosci Klimb teams have raised more than $1.3 million for the Sports Programs held by Cerebral Palsy Alliance. The funds raised also provide essential funding to purchase equipment for the Accessible Gym.
