Join the Movement in 2022 by walking and pushing your way through January for WheelPower!

Walk off the stresses of this past year, and push away those winter blues with the latest event from WheelPower, the national charity for Wheelchair Sport.

In 2021 we launched the 'The WheelPower Winter Walk & Push’ to encourage people to take on their own challenges and to get moving to start the year and in 2022 we are returning for this winter.

Throughout the Covid-19 pandemic we have all understood the growing importance of daily exercise & physical activity upon our mental/physical health and wellbeing. Even on the coldest days of the month getting some fresh air and having a short stroll or push around the block can make such a difference, so please 'Join The Movement' and set yourselves an achievable distance goal over this January.  

You have the whole of the month to complete your challenge and it is up to you what you decide to set the target distance as. Whether you want to push for 1 mile, walk a 5-mile route in one day, push for 20 miles over a fortnight, or walk 1 mile a day for the month, it’s entirely up to you!

Entry is FREE

Why take part?

It has been a tough time for the charity sector and as we continue our recovery from a significant loss of fundraising income we hope you will join us by taking part in a wintery walking or pushing challenge!

WheelPower continues to transform the lives of thousands of disabled people throughout the UK and over the past 18 months we have adapted to the changes to provide new opportunities. During the pandemic we have created new online resources, hosted live classes and gifted exercise equipment to support disabled children and adults to stay active from their homes. 

Now more than ever, every single pound you are able to raise will help us continue our vital work at Stoke Mandeville Stadium and beyond.
