Join Jizerska 50 in helping Petr get a new wheelchair

There are many fighters among paraplegics who have remained positive in spite of the cruel fate. One such eternal optimist is Petr Bartoš, a computer programmer from Liberec. Together with Jizerská 50, you can help him now by means of the Výbor dobré vůle – Nadace Olgy Havlové (charity Foundation).

He was injured during his military service back in the totalitarian times. One unfortunate jump in the water and his spinal chord was irreparably damaged. Petr didn’t give up though and wanted to enjoy life to the full. After long months in the hospital, he decided to go back to sport, which had always played a big role in his life. As a true native of the Jizera Mountains he loved skiing the best.

“After an injury, I was looking for a sport I could do to get into a better shape. I tried several sports from table tennis and athletics to archery,” says Petr about his path to sport. It was archery that became his new hobby, he reached elite level and his success was not insubstantial. “I regularly took part in European and world championships, I managed to get a few medals too. My greatest success was participating at the London 2012 Paralympic Games.”

He’s now finished his active top-level sporting career, but he continues to coach. “I train archers in Nové Město nad Metují Sports Club and I take part in organizing international archery championships,” says Petr with a smile on his face and obvious pride.

Apart from doing archery, which is not his major source of income, he spends his time with his family in Liberec and doing his job. For his everyday and active life, Petr needs a quality wheelchair. A wheelchair that will keep up with his life’s tempo is not a cheap thing, though. For this reason, Petr is seeking financial support from the Olga Havlová Foundation and from all of us.

ČEZ Jizerská 50 has decided to help him raise the target sum to buy an Ultina wheelchair, which costs 53 thousand Czech crowns, with the help of the Committee of Good Will – Olga Havlová Foundation.
