GIAG 2018

"Give it a Go" 2018

A huge big thank you to the sponsors for making the GIAG weekend happen. What another fun conference. This will be my fourth amp camp attending. It’s such a fun weekend to meet new amputees reaquaint with old friends and partake in exciting adventures. White water rafting was so much fun. I am very proud that I climbed up and jumped off a high rock half way down. Pushing your limits and out of your comfort zones. It’s a wonderful weekend to be around other amputees and I’m so grateful to the sponsors who pay so we can attend.

Over the weekend, I had a great time in Wellington. It was really great to be able to meet people that I could talk to and relate to about being an amputee and see how people thrive even with missing a limb. It was great to be able to do new things with people my age and build some new friendships with everyone because they were all really nice and considerate about everything. I hope for more young people to be able to experience the trip and have the support that this group of people give especially because some families aren’t very supportive in the process because they haven’t gone through it so don’t know how to react and support you properly. I look forward to being able to go along next year and meet all these great people and hopefully more and create more friendships.

Had such a great weekend Taiko drumming, white-water rafting along with meeting and catching up with fellow amputees with the Give it a go programme in Wellington. Thanks to all the sponsors for making it possible.

This was my first time on the GIAG trip and I had an awesome time. I got to meet new people and experience new things like taiko drumming, which I have done nothing like before and I thoroughly enjoyed. I also had a lot of fun whitewater rafting as well. I got to meet a lot of awesome people who I'm hoping to seeing in the future. Huge thanks to everyone who made it happen and I'm looking forward to future trips.

What can I say giag is always such a good weekend and so much fun getting to hang out with other amputees of a simpler age group and get to go and try new fun activities. We all need to give huge thanks to our sponsors people who make it all happens for us. Its definitely something I look forward to each year and once it arrives it always goes too fast but enjoyed by everyone.
