About me - Madi Fox

Hello. I’m Madi Fox. I’m 16.

When I was 9, I was hit by a car leaving a playground in Nairne. I am lucky to have survived. For the past 7 years I have learnt to do everything again. Walk, talk, swallow, read, live. Before my accident I was a mad athlete. Any sport was great but basketball was my real love. I’ve been lucky to find it again but my physical and intellectual challenges now make it so much harder for me to achieve my best.

Last October I went to Tasmania to play basketball for South Australia at the Special Olympics National Games.  I was so proud to compete and represent my State. Now I have been asked to go to Germany next June for the Special Olympics World Games and play basketball for Australia! I cannot believe it. There are only 4 athletes going from South Australia.

So many people helped me get to Tasmania. Now I need to raise $9,000 to go to Germany. If you are unable to help with a donation, please send me lots of positive vibes for my journey and for Australia.

Thank you, Madi

Will you get me to the World Games?

I'm so proud to have been picked to wear the green and gold at the World Games in Berlin. 

To be part of an Australian team and go overseas will be a dream come true. But I need to raise $9,000 to get there. That’s a lot of money and I need your help!   

Will you please donate today and get me to Berlin? I promise I will do my best and make Australia proud. If you donate through this page YOUR money goes directly towards MY fundraising goal.  

You can donate any amount you want, but I like these amounts:  

$64 because it represents each athlete 

$28 because it represents each official 

$92 because it represents the whole team  

$150 because it’s just a good number!  

I’m told that donations of $2 and over are tax-deductible, so please donate and help me get to the Games. 

I’ll let our team know that you’re awesome because you support us. Thank you!
