Trulittle Sports Hero (7-11)
Ezechi is currently registered as carer with Enfield young carers he has a huge responsibility at home with helping to care for younger his brother.
Ezechi is 10 and he currently helps care for his brother Kelechi who is 8 years of age. He is under care at Great Ormond Street Hospital as his seizures cannot be stabilised.
His days are always unpredictable, he has to think on his feet and help very quickly call ambulance pack bag call for help in an event of his brother having seizures.
When his brothers had seizures, he can be very disorientated or violent which both Ezechi has to manage and deal with.
The last incident Ezechi on his way to athletics training and his brother had a seizure in the car. He then had a seizure at the front entrance of the athletics centre. Ezechi got the right help and threw himself in to training to complete his session as he is very passionate about being an Olympic gold medallist in future.
Ezechi was picked for his school to run in August, unfortunately he missed his training to prepare for the competition as we had to move property due to s very serious domestic Violent incident in which the police deemed the property as unsafe.
As resilient as Ezechi was missing a week of school and additional training he still competed at lee valley stadium for his school an won a gold medal.
Ezechi is out going no matter what circumstances are he pushes himself to his potential.
He doesn’t have the normal life of your ordinary 10 year old there’s no holiday there’s play dates his consistently in and out of hospital at his brothers side.
He only puts time aside for training and when he first wore his kit the first thing he said whilst looking in the mirror and wearing it is that I finally feel a part of something I can be proud of. I’m excited about his journey with Be Fit Today Track Academy
And I feel Ezechi should be awarded for how resilient caring courageous positive character he is he always puts everyone before he never complains no matter how long the hours are in hospital or days with his brother. He always helps. With all this, he still has the dream of being an Olympian one day!
