The Royal Port Alfred Golf Club hosted a fundraising event for Healing Horses on Monday evening to raise awareness and funds for its work in improving the lives of differently-abled people, old and young. The RPAGC car park was full as more than 150 people attended the event.
Guest speaker and advocate for the differently-abled, Michaela (Chaeli) Mycroft, has done more in her 25-years of life than most “Normality-abled” people, being an award-winning dancer, a runner, a mountain climber and a motivational speaker – to name but a few of her achievements.
Mycroft is also a horse rider who had to choose between riding horses and dancing. She chose dancing and has won many awards for wheelchair dancing as a consequence.
However, her advocacy for the disabled has become a huge part of her life and has led her to face challenges that even “normality-abled” (her phrase) people would find difficult.
