GET KIDS GOING –Supporting disabled children

Get Kids Going! A National Charity, which gives disabled children and young people – up to the age of 26 years – the wonderful opportunity of participating in sport. The aim is to provide specially built sports’ wheelchairs so they can do marathons, triathlons, tennis, athletics, mountain skiing, rugby, basketball etc. The charity also helps with the encouragement and support of their sport and assists with training physiotherapy and travel With help many could become future Paralympics Champions!

Get Kids Going! Also provides personalised manual wheelchairs and trikes for children to use every day: at home, at school and to enable them to play with their friends.

All seven members of the team are all from the local area and the main aim is to raise money that would benefit the disabled locally. It would be ideal to support to local disabled people at grass roots level and give the opportunity to participate in a sport of their choice.

The fund will also help Shelly Woods a British International Wheelchair Athlete from east Lancashire on her route to the Beijing Paralympics in 2008.
