John's MKM Half Marathon

I am raising money to buy a sit-snowboard for ASMK for Disability Snowsport UK - The Skiers and Boarders Charity because it offers more choice for adaptive snowboarders

Story

I've been involved with adaptive snowsports for many years, particularly with trying to improve the accessibility of snowboarding in the UK. One area that is poorly supported is snowboarding equipment for those unable to use a regular snowboard, such as those who use a wheelchair.

The Dutch company Prodaptive have developed a sit-snowboard that is an amazing piece of kit, able to offer snowboarding to those who would normally be directed to a mono sit-ski. The equipment currently costs 3000 EUR - I'm aiming to raise the money over a series of events, this half marathon being the first!
