I'm taking part in my first Sprint Triathlon on Sunday 6th September at Eton Dorney lake (yes I'm even swimming in a lake!!) and wanted to use this personal mobility challenge to help my cousin's little girl Elspeth get mobile in her first powered wheelchair.
Elspeth was born on Boxing Day 2013 and is a gorgeous little chatterbox. Earlier this year she was diagnosed with SMA type 2. SMA is a progressive neuromuscular condition which means Elspeth is not independently mobile.
Take a look at her website to find out more about Elspeth and the powered chair that is helping her to become independent and a keen explorer! http://elspethswheels.weebly.com
Any donations to Elspeth's mobility fund, no matter how small, would be so appreciated. As I'm swimming, cycling and running around Eton Dorney, I'll be spurred on to the finish line by looking forward to being chased around by Elspeth on my next visit North :-)
Thanks so much
