Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

My name is Stephen Miller. I was born with cerbal palsey from birth, which is a form of brain damage that affects the signals from my brain to my muscles and makes balance and coordination more difficult than usual. I'm now a professional athlete, competing in field athletics including the club(javelin/hammer), discus and shot putt. I have represented Great Britain for over 12 years, competing in 4 Paralympic Games, 3 World Championships and 2 European Championships. You can find out all about me at my website and follow me on my blog.

I've supported Sport Relief througout the years and have even done the mile in my electric wheelchair, but that was a bit easy for me, so I thought I'd do something a bit more challenging for Sport Relief 2010. On the 23rd February I'm going to attempt to throw the club consecutively for a mile in less than an hour. I will need to throw at least a club a minute and need to average about 30 metres - when you consider my average for the last competitive season was 31 metres, it's not going to be easy. I'm sure I can do it, and need all the help I can get on the day - if you'd like to get involved please get in touch.

In the mean time, please dig deep and donate now.
