Attitude is Everything needs YOU for Parallel London 2017
Posted on 28.04.2017
A group of people running and propelling wheelchairs under the Parallel London 2016 banner.
Run, walk, push or be pushed at the world’s first fully inclusive mass participation challenge event and help support our work to improve deaf and disabled people’s access to live music.
On Sunday September 3rd thousands of people of all abilities will come together in London’s Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park. In 2016 we had a team of three, including our CEO Suzanne Bull MBE, take on the challenge offered by Parallel and fundraise for Attitude is Everything. This year we’d like even more people to be part of the event!
“I had a fabulous time at the Parallel event last year. At first, the thought of doing anything remotely sporty was daunting because I was such a failure during school PE lessons. However, doing sport in an inclusive environment was an uplifting and fulfilling experience. Knowing that I was fundraising for such a great organisation also spurred me on to the finish line.” – Suzanne Bull MBE, Attitude is Everything CEO
You (and your PA if you need one) can take up the challenge of one of the following distances: 100m, 500m, 1km, 5km or 10km. Unlike many challenge events, there is no cut off time at Parallel, so the distance you choose can be completed at your own pace.
Date: Sunday 3 September
Sponsorship target: £150
No entry fee.
To sign up for one of our 10 free places visit this Eventbrite page and enter discount code Attitude2017. This code means you won’t be charged to enter the event.
You can also register your interest or send questions by emailing Simon Webb on firstname.lastname@example.org.
You can sign-up up to a week in advance, but we recommend signing up by the beginning of August in order to have time to prepare for the challenge and meet the sponsorship target.
Alongside the push/run, Parallel will be host to a free family festival showcasing the best in innovation and inclusion: find out more here.
Parallel is actively striving to increase the lifestyle choices of deaf and disabled people by creating an inclusive sports and fitness event. As their aims in physical activity match those of ours in live music, we would be delighted if you would consider joining our team on 3 September.
