Revista - London Marathon 2012, YOO sponsors Get Kids Going!
YOO had great pleasure in sponsoring the Get Kids Going Charity at this month's London Marathon. Victoria Ridsdale Smith ran the course amid cheers and crowd support doing fantastically well to raise money for this inspiring charity.
Get Kids Going! is a National charity which gives disabled children and young people - up to the age of 26 yrs - the wonderful opportunity of participating in sport. We provide them with specially built sports' wheelchairs so they can do: athletics, marathons, tennis, skiing, rugby, sailing, boccia, basketball, sledge hockey, table tennis, fencing, shooting, archery, powerlifting and many more sports. Get Kids Going! inspires British disabled youngsters to compete in sporting events, from start to paralympic level, by giving them 'sports grants' to help with their; training, physiotherapy, travel, competition fees, design and development of sports' wheelchairs etc. With your help many can become world record holders and paralympic champions!
Their aim is to give support to all our budding paralympians in the build up to the London 2012 Paralympic games and beyond.
There are over 200 disabled talented youngsters who have the potential to compete at London 2012 but receive either none or very little funding and are desperate to achieve their life-long dream. With your help, together we can turn their dreams into reality and help make them into sporting heroes!
