Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

 Watch the documentary Dia Wheels 100 Miles (out now)

From May 8th to July 26th I wheeled a total of 100 miles in my wheelchair (an everyday wheelchair, not a racer wheelchair) mainly in British countryside parks. I did this to raise money for the British Heart Foundation. This was a charity close to my friend Wynford who passed away in 2009.

Throughout the 100 mile journey, I posted many updates, videos and pictures to share with you. Right now the final documentary is being edited about the trip to Wales, and will be available to view soon online. 

I was very excited to take on this challenge, and to have completed it on time in the Brecon Beacons was a great feeling.

I thank everyone who did support me and this challenge by sponsoring me to wheel. I had a target to raise £500, and still not have reached that target, which is a shame, but if you would like to help, you can still donate today. All of this money goes straight to the British Heart Foundation, and they need all of the help they can get.

Many thanks,

Dia
