Ellie Simpson was the only female RaceRunner to represent England at the Nottingham 2015 CPISRA World Games.
Ellie’s passion for sport wasn’t always there but after attending a Cerebral Palsy Sport athletics series as a club thrower and being introduced to RaceRunning. She has just graduated from her a degree in Sport Development and Coaching and uses every opportunity to raise the profile of RaceRunning.
On becoming a Cerebral Palsy Sport Ambassador Ellie said:
“I am so honoured that CP Sport have chosen me to be a Young Ambassador, and alongside my best friend Matthew, who I also met through CP Sport. CP Sport has changed my life and they got me into RaceRunning – a sport that I love and couldn’t imagine my life without. I am so excited about being a Young Ambassador for CP Sport and I can’t wait to show other young people with Cerebral Palsy & physical disabilities all about CP Sport & how they can get involved in all of the sports, events and opportunities!”
