My story

[p][b]The Challenge.[/b][/p][p]I have accepted the challenge of pushing my wheelchair 200km during the month of August, to achieve this distance I will be taking part in multiple sessions including the Blackpool 10k event. The Distance will be calculated using Fitbit and tomtom and submitted to virtual runner as prove of distance.[/p][p][b]Why?[/b][/p][p]Just under 10 years ago I became a full-time wheelchair user due to an hereditary disease. [/p][p]I could barely push my manual wheelchair independently. During this time, I also lost the one sport I excelled in! that was skiing. I had been involved with all things ski related for over 10 years. After losing my independence, sport and the passion for life I became very depress, isolated and unfit. After many difficult years, I eventually accepted my disabilities and started taking part in adaptive sports, including Skiing in a sit ski.[/p][p]Snow Buddies UK gave me back my drive, passion, love for life and a desire to ski again with my family and friends in those cold and snowy mountains.[/p][p][b]I thought I would NEVER ski again.[/b][/p][p]Snow Buddies UK aided my rehabilitation and acceptance of becoming a disabled athlete. Your donations will create a level playing field between disabled and able-bodied skiers helping make this amazing sport available to all. Everything from equipment to transport can cost up to three times as much for disabled skiers and snowboarders.[/p][p]With your help I hope to raise £10 for every kilometer I cover in my wheelchair during the month of August. Thank you for taking the time to read my story. Claire[/p]
