During March, International Women’s Day is recognised across the globe.
On 8th March this year, Cerebral Palsy Sport shared stories from female participants at our events, and announced a new Young Sporting Ambassador to our team, Catriona Chung.
Another Young Sporting Ambassador for Cerebral Palsy Sport, Ellie Simpson. was also recognised on this day, as one of Sheffield’s most Inspirational women by The Star newspaper. Ellie has cerebral palsy and competes for England in RaceRunning and at Cerebral Palsy Sport Athletics events. She has created a charity, CP Teens UK which helps young people with cerebral palsy.
Ellie’s passion for sport wasn’t always there but after attending a Cerebral Palsy Sport athletics series as a club thrower, she found her interest in sport and was introduced to RaceRunning. She uses every opportunity to raise the profile of RaceRunning and help show other young people with cerebral palsy & physical disabilities all about Cerebral Palsy Sport Sport & how they can get involved.
