Get Kids Going

Get Kids Going! helps disabled children take part in sport by providing specialist sports wheelchairs, sports grants and year round support. They can then compete in marathons, triathlons, tennis, athletics, skiing, rugby, basketball etc. With your help, many could become Paralympic champions and world record holders.

Charity Registration No. 1063471


One down, one to go! Whilst both Jo and I had a tough race and didn't do the times we wanted, Sharon Page came in just 47 secs over her target so well done Shaz!

It's all about the Great South now, lots of training and much better pre race prep needed!


Thanks to everyone who has sponsored so far!


Please sponsor Teresa and Jo for both the Great North this weekend in Newcastle, and also the Great South Run on October 25th, both of which we are running for Get Kids Going. GKG give disabled children and young people a chance to participate in sport.  All donations welcome, even the smallest amount will make a big difference overall.

An update will be posted between the Great North and Great South to let you know how we got on this weekend.
