Weʼre raising £1,000 to Registered charity: Empowered people. I will be taking part in the UK National 3 peaks challenge for my first time Friday 21st June 2019.
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
EMpowered people is a registered charity. Our aim is to be an organisation that will enable all adults with disabilities, from all backgrounds regardless of gender, race or level of ability, to improve their health and wellbeing through cycling and other activities by providing the correct tools, support and encouragement, thus enabling them to achieve their personal targets. We also aim to help change some public preconceptions about disability and promote the potential of all persons of restricted abilities.
Medical proof shows that an active person will maintain a greater independence and a healthier life style. Our belief is that this is crucial for mobility impaired people. Non impact exercise such as cycling, coupled with the correct assistance, training and equipment, will improve a person’s health and well being.
EMpowered people will use the power of cycling to dispel misconceptions and help educate others to understand that some of the major limitations on a disabled person are those that society puts upon them. The able-bodied do not always see what can be achieved.
EMpowered people will bring together a group of people who have been affected by disability and allow them to show what a group of individuals with professional training, modern inclusive cycles, and the correct help and support can achieve. With our help disabled people can reach horizons and goals that seemed insurmountable.
Disabled people throughout their lives have had to adapt and make changes to fulfil their personal objectives. EMpowered people will strive to help make achieving objectives happen by allowing them to prove that, although they have a disability, this does not preclude them from being part of society and when given the right tools and direction produce great results.
