The lovely Hannah, from Hannah’s Hope, asked if I would like to participate in annual event which will raise money for White Lodge which is very close to her heart!
“White Lodge is a great place that supports disabled children, young people and adults in a huge variety of areas. From physiotherapy and hydrotherapy for all ages, a nursery for disabled and abled bodied children, play-schemes, a respite centre-Treetops for young people under the age of 18, leisure and lifestyle skills for adults etc.”
“For these reasons I want to support White Lodge, to continue to make a difference to disabled people in Surrey and the surrounding area. This is why I have chosen to do the Superhero Tri in aid of White Lodge this year. I felt that I could make a bigger difference by having more teams. So, I am pleased to announce that I have two teams under the umbrella of Team Hannah. We have my team in which Nia my PA is swimming, I am doing the cycling with Dad supporting me as my sidekick, in an adapted tandem hand cycle and my Mum is doing the walking.”
“We are doing the Sprint Superhero Tri dressed as superheroes. This involves a 150-metre open water swim, a 3 km cycle and a 1km walk/wheel/run. To many it will seem a short distance, however it will be a huge challenge for both Ami and myself.”
As Hannah has already said, this is going to be a huge challenge for the both of us. It’s something that I never thought I would be able to do again…but being in a wheelchair isn’t going to stop me from trying.
I hope to wheel myself for the whole of 1km but I know I will need to pace myself and it will take a while.
