On Sunday 4th September 2016, Team One Trust (aka Anand, Cherry, Gary, Ian, Linda, Michael and Roger) took to the track at London’s iconic Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park to compete in Parallel London – the worlds first fully inclusive and accessible push/ run for everyone.
Exactly four years on from the London Paralympics, this was Parallel London’s inaugural event. Disabled and non-disabled people of all ages and all abilities united to run, walk, wheel, push or be pushed for fun, to raise awareness, or to raise funds for their chosen charities. Supported by members of our staff team, Team One Trust took part in both the Sensory 1k and 100m dash races and have so far raised over £350 in sponsorship. Afterwards, some well deserved ice-creams and entertainment (and plenty of freebies!) were enjoyed by all at the event’s family festival. The day was a resounding success – to find out more about the event, races and festival plans for 2017 visit www.parallellondon.com.
