Jordon Milroy is a 22-year-old living with a disability and is determined to reach out to fellow Pacific Islanders in a special way.

“I have cerebral palsy but I don’t suffer from it,” he says.

Milroy has set himself the remarkable challenge of climbing the 1029 stairs at the Auckland Sky Tower without using his wheelchair.

He is aiming to raise $5000 to buy wheelchairs for people in Samoa who have disabilities.

Milroy was born in Samoa and is of Samoan and German descent. He wants to help people who face the added challenges of living with a disability in a developing country.
