Thanks so much for visiting our page!
We need you to be a fundraising hero for us!
You can make us and our members - who live with disabilities and long term-health conditions - proud; all by donating our Team Ability Bow Big Fun Run runners this year within this year's 5k Big Fun Run in Victoria Park on 28 October 2018!
We have a target of raising at least £1,000 to our team this year.
We know any contribution you give - which will go towards rebuilding our long-term one-to-one support service for people with complex conditions and disabilities - is invaluable to us and our service.

Meet Albie. In 2013 he was diagnosed with multiple myeloma cancer and in a wheelchair. Today, he's walking again!
Albie's diagnosis is incurable. He developed a terminal tumour in his back which fractured his spinal cord in two places.
Albie's Remarkable Recovery
This left the former professional dancer and choreographer in hospital for seven and a half months. Since being released and joining our Ability Bow gym, he's been making an incredible recovery while living with cancer.
He is now partially paralysed and has weaknesses to his lower limbs.
Albie now has ongoing chemotheraphy treatment once a month at various hospitals; but none of his diagnosis is stopping him from giving back to us and taking part taking part in this year's Big Fun Run in 2018 (after a previous effort in 2014).
You can be like Albie. You can help him and others to keep all of our gym members fitter and stronger, for longer, just by taking part in this year's Big Fun Run!
Why Else You Can Be A Hero For Us
Most importantly, the 5k Big Fun Run gives you the chance to raise vital funds for our gym (which works with people living with disabilities and long-term health conditions) and its magnficent members.
The impact is invaluable!
Without your support in sponsoring our Ability Bow Big Fun Run team, our members like Christine and Ken - who live with Hereditary Spastic Paraplegia - would find it challenging to live as positively as they do with their diagnosis.
Your help also ensures our gym members like Nathan - who lives with an acquired brain inury - manage their remarkable recoveries from in his case, a wheelchair to walking again.
Nathan even says he wouldn't even be here without you, your fundraising and; the help and support from our specialist exercise instructor team!
Any donation to our fabulous fun runners is welcome in helping us to reach more people in more communities with disabilities.
Thanks again for reading, for your time and your invaluable support!
