Team story

[p]In 2003 Gary Dawson came off his motorbike in a freak accident which left him completely paralysed from the chest down. SIA offered not just Gary, but his whole family support, providing information and advice on how to cope and adapt to this life changing injury. [/p][p]One of the services SIA provides is Peer Support, giving spinal cord injured people someone to talk to, ask questions and obtain guidance from, someone who has themselves been spinally injured. Gary now works in one of these positions and has seen first hand the benefits of the charity's work in helping people come to terms with a life changing disability.[/p][p]To raise money for this fantastic charity we are organising a charity bike ride from Preston to Southport, but don't worry if cycling isn't for you, you can still donate through this website and still do your bit to help[/p][p]Every Eight Hours Someone is Permanently Paralysed[/p][p][br][/p]
