WheelPower and the five Olympic host borough’s (Greenwich, Hackney, Newham, Tower Hamlets and Waltham Forest) will provide up to 120 young disabled people, aged 11-18 years old from the five Olympic host borough’s, with a fun, positive, life changing experience in sporting and cultural activities at Stoke Mandeville Stadium, the birthplace of the Paralympic Games.
I have attended this event on 6 different occasions during my time working on site and will continue to do so once my time has come to an end on site as I enjoy it so much.
Everyone from the organisers, to the volunteers and the children and their carers have such a great time, it's always smiles all round, infact I dont think I've ever encountered tears in any form.
Here are a selection from last weeks event (2-5 April) most of the children featured are from Waltham Forest, as this was the group I was assigned to.
Here is a video from the 2011 event, see how many times you can spot me....
