Charity Registration No. 249338

Story

Last year I did my first 5K push and really enjoyed it so I decided to be more active this year and I found out about the Superhero Series triathlon. They describe it:

It's big. It's bold. It's gutsy. It's the UK’s one and only disability sports series for the everyday Superhero! For our very first event, we’re kicking off with three uniquely designed triathlons (swim, bike and push/run) that let you do as little or as much as you like. Team up with disabled and non-disabled family and friends to take on one stage each, or fly solo and do all three! Cape optional.

As it's my first event I'm doing a 400m swim, 10km cycle and a 2.5km push as I didn't want to over do things

As many of you will know, one of the reasons I use a wheelchair is that I was born with Spina Bifida. Because of this I'm raising money for the charity Shine.

Shine provides specialist support from before birth and throughout the life of anyone living with spina bifida and/or hydrocephalus, as well as to parents, families, carers and professional care staff. Shine enables people to get the best out of life.Everything we do is made possible by our generous supporters. Your fundraising efforts help individuals and families in your local communities across England, Wales and Northern Ireland. Every donation has the potential for profound impact.THANK YOU for supporting Shine!
