My story

[p]A recent patient interaction told me the tale of a professional triathlete friend who was paralysed in a freak cycling accident and reminded me how fragile our mobility is that we all take for granted.[/p][p]I visited Aspire's centre in Stanmore to witness the help that they provide for such unfortunate people to facilitate a fuller life including wheelchair basketball and swimming but also more tasks in being capable of communicating with the outside world.[/p][p]Therefore this summer, around the 3rd of July 2020 I'm forming part of a 6 person relay team to swim the English Channel to raise money for Aspire.[/p][p]Any donations will make the hours of training and very cold water swims more than worth it.[/p][p]Many thanks, Barry x[/p][p]Every four hours in the UK someone is paralysed by a spinal cord injury; it can happen to anyone at any time and no one is prepared for how it will change their life. Aspire exists because there is currently no cure. We provide practical help to people who have been paralysed by spinal cord injuries, helping them move from injury to independence. [/p][p]Our services include: Aspire Grants, Aspire Housing, Independent Living, Welfare Benefits Advice, Housing Advice, Assistive Technology, Campaigning and Research.[/p][p]For details of all our fundraising events please go to [url=][/url].[/p]
