Story

Hi,

We're a group of civil servants raising money for the fantastic charity, WheelPower! Through a variety of events, including charity half marathons, a pub quiz, some fantastic speeches and much much more.

For nearly 70 years, WheelPower has been providing opportunities in sport to people with physical impairments, from first timers to Paralympic medalists. Sport enriches lives with the amazing physical and psychological benefits it offers. Each year, WheelPower supports over 100,000 people to participate in sport and activity across the country.

We'll be updating this page regularly with what's coming up and the amazing work that WheelPower does so stay tuned!

Thank you for your kind support!

Everyone in the Fast Wheels team

This Sunday, 18 March, our team member Robin is going to run the Hampton Court Palace Half Marathon in aid of WheelPower! He has been putting in the miles over the last few months and is aiming for a time of 1hour 45minutes. Please support Robin in his challenge - we're all rooting for him!

Next Wednesday 14th March, I (Georgiana - am running the page so felt a little strange typing in the third person...) will be shaving my head! I'll be donating my hair to the Little Princess Trust, a fantastic charity that makes wigs for children and young adults who've lost their hair to cancer treatment or other illnesses, and raising money for WheelPower! I'm really excited (if a little daunted...) and am excited to raise money for such a brilliant cause. I had the opportunity to volunteer at one of WheelPower's events recently - it was a great experience and really inspiring to see how they help people which makes shaving my head a little bit easier! Thanks in advance for your support, I will make sure to post before and after pictures!

On Saturday March 10th, our team member Scarlet will be indoor rock climbing 96 meters in aid of WheelPower - a height equivalent to scaling Big Ben! Please support her in this challenge, we're so excited for her and wishing her lots of luck for next weekend!
