How the donations support the team:
£200 would help us put home comforts into one athlete’s bedroom, creating a comfortable, relaxed home from home for the athletes
£250 will pay for one athlete to go through one day of a preparation camp for Rio 2016, giving them vital experience of a multi-sport environment and taking them one step closer to achieving their dream of representing ParalympicsGB
£1000 will pay for a full medical team for one day at the Games - that’s a doctor, a nurse, a physio and a psychologist - enabling the wide-ranging medical requirements of the team to be catered for and ensuring the athletes are in the best possible shape to compete
£1250 would pay for one athlete to attend our Paralympic Inspiration Programme, taking athletes hoping for 2020 selection to Rio 2016 to prepare them for the daunting, unique experience of competing at the Paralympic Games
£2500 would pay for an additional athlete support staff member to be accredited at the Games – access to the Paralympic Village is very restricted, and this would mean the athletes can be better supported by expert staff
£4000 provides a place for an athlete on a 6 month talent transition programme which will support getting them on to a sport pathway programme and may put them in the frame for ParalympicsGB selection
£25,000 would allow ParalympicsGB to run a Sports Science and Sports Medicine Conference, ensuring that British practitioners remain ahead of the rest of the world in terms of the medical support that can be offered to the athletes
As the prime event this year takes us to the Post boxes from London 2012, it seemed appropriate to include Paralympics GB as one of the charities to support. Of the 111 boxes on route, over 40 relate to the 34 Paralympics GB gold medals.
Paralympics GB are a charity and whsilt they do get grant funding, it is fitting to support them as part of the cycle. Hopefully we’ll have some of the medallists on route.
