South Downs Way 100 mile ultra, 8 June 2024
We use the power of sport to enhance the lives of disabled people

Story

On 8 June, I will be attempting my first (and, my wife advises, last) 100 mile run across the South Downs Way to raise money for Disability Sports Coach. I am a trustee of the charity, and have seen first hand the physical, social and mental benefits of providing sporting opportunities to people with disabilities.

Health reasons mean that many people with disabilities are still living in the shadow of covid - something that seems a distant memory for many of us. The Cost of Living has impacted people further. Our charity is working hard to provide that sporting outlet for people that, otherwise, would not have the opportunity for physical activity and the friendships the DSC clubs help foster.

About the charity

We use the power of sport to enhance the lives of disabled people. Disabled people are twice as likely to be inactive as non-disabled people. Through our inclusive clubs, coaching sessions in schools and expert-led training, we break down barriers to sport for 5,000 disabled people each year.
