I have taken on major sporting challenges despite having cerebral palsy a severe visual impairment learning difficulties and epilepsy I love exercising and enjoy riding either a specialised tricycle or a tandem with my Mum I love swimming walking and running too. I have taken part in dozens of charity cycles and fun runs. In 2008 I swam the equivalent distance of the English Channel and last year I completed the Eilat traithlon. Through my participation in these events I have raised over £60000 for the different charities which have supported me and my family over the past 17 years. I wake up every morning grateful to be alive and always have a smile on my face and a spring in my step. My family say that they get so much strength from me and my wonderful attitude to life. I am taking part in another traithlon in October to raise money to help others like me.
