CP Can Event Reports

On Saturday 6th April we travelled to Cambridge to deliver a RaceRunning taster session for the Upside Down Club Sports Club at the One Leisure Indoor Facility in St. Ives.  We had a great mixture of ages and abilities at the event with some who have tried RaceRunning and others who had never seen the sport before, everyone who attended was a wheelchair or frame user.  It was a fantastic session with everyone taking part and using a RaceRunner to move around the sportshall, siblings and parents also had a go, we even had a race across the sports hall with everyone joining in and running really well.  Quest 88 provided great support bringing along lots of frames and supporting all the participants and Rebecca Evans from Living Sport was our photographer.  This event was supported by Children in Need and every participant received a medal and certificate on the day.  Janie (organiser of the Upside Down Sports Club) said “Thank you for delivering a fab session for our members.  Great to see them up on their feet and moving.”  We will be looking to go back to Cambridge in the future delivering more to the Upside Down Sports Club, working with Living Sport and the local athletics club to develop RaceRunning locally.  Thank you to the Upside Down Sports Club, Living Sport, Quest 88 and all the participants for supporting such an enjoyable session.
