Disabled CFC Member – Challenge To Conquer Mount Snowdon

!cid_66d9aabd-7b60-11e2-bf55-00237de4a792_1My name is Giuseppe Merola & I’m 28 and I am a disabled member at Chelsea, based in Peterborough and watch them as many times a season that I can both home and away.

I am in a wheelchair as I was born with Spina Bifida which is a Spinal defect that occurs as a foetus. I work for a Company called Coloplast and I along with 16 work colleagues are taking up an incredible challenge to conquer the highest mountain in England & Wales – Mount Snowdon – which is over 3500ft high on the weekend of 5th July 2013.

This is no ordinary climb however as I am a Spinal cord injured patient and my colleagues will be pushing, pulling, climbing and wheeling me to the summit and back down again, covering 8 mile of mixed terrain and raising money for the Back Up Trust.

Back Up are a fantastic charity that provide services include mentoring, wheelchair skills training and activity courses as well as support in getting back to work or school after a Spinal Cord Injury. They provide peer led tailored support to help people adjust to a spinal cord injury and inspire independence and confidence for a positive future.

Our Target to raise is £3,200 in order for us to be able to take part in the climb and our Just Giving page for any possible donations is



We at Chelsea Supporters Group think this is an amazing challenge for a fantastic cause & hope that other Chelsea fans will consider sponsoring Giuseppe & spreading the word.
