Champ Yearsley, known throughout the British boxing community as simply 'Champ', is a very special boy. Born with quadriplegic cerebral palsy, he was not expected to live long or ever walk unaided. With the support of his parents, the Peacock Gym family and, most of all, his own astounding fortitude, Champ is now 19 and more mobile than ever before.
The Yearsley family are still forced to live day-to-day and, as a result, made a list of dreams Champ wanted to accomplish. He has now achieved all but one and this is the purpose of our campaign.
Champ is a huge WWE fan and the final wish on his list is to attend their showpiece event, Wrestlemania, live. The show takes place every April in the United States and to cover event tickets, adapted travel and accommodation, will take a significant sum.
Champ has already overcome so much and inspired so many people around him, we would like to pay him back. Who knows what the future may hold, but Champ strives to live every day to the max and we want to help him make one particular day extra special.
