Superheroes and Sidekicks Triathlon
Sam Loft of 9 Ashdown recently took part in a Celebrity Team Superhero Triathlon event organised by Paralympian Sophie Warner. The aim of the event was to give people of all ages with all kinds of disabilities, an opportunity to participate in fun and competitive sport. Over 1700 everyday Superheroes and their Sidekicks participated in the event; www.superheroseries.co.uk
Sam participated as part of Team Chris Jones (World Champion surfing medalist) and was competing against para athletes like Jonnie Peacock, David Weir and Kadeena Cox. Sam completed the 3km bike ride section of the race on a tandem trike. Sam also completed two more legs of another Tri with his family; a 3km bike ride and 1km run/push in his sports wheelchair.
It was an amazing day with so many inspirational people. So far Sam has raised an incredible £825 for the charity CMT.org; www.cmt.org.uk
