Team Reeves

Last year Team Reeves, led by Jake and his partner Ashleigh, walked, ran, and cycled to complete their 100K. They raised an incredible $16,735, but also made a significant impact in supporting children like their son Koa who was diagnosed at just three months old with bilateral optic nerve hypoplasia.

Before Vision Australia we felt lost and unsure where to go. They now provide us with so much knowledge and the best support system we could have wished for. Vision Australia have been right there beside us throughout this journey so far, always going above and beyond.” Jake said. 

Team Reeves will be taking on 100K Your Way again this April! At this stage Koa has not had any new developments with his sight and currently has no vision. With the support of Vision Australia, Jake and Ashleigh have been getting the expertise and assistance to help keep Koa develop with his blindness. 

"Koa receives Occupational therapy, Physiotherapy and Speech therapy all in our own home. Koa’s therapists have been incredible, they provide us with knowledge and confidence in supporting Koa. They have assisted Koa in reaching his goals so far and celebrate the big milestones with us such as crawling and learning to walk" Jake said.
