As official charity friends of the Superhero Series, the UK’s one and only disability sports series, CP Sport were honoured to have 7 teams take part this summer in the At Home Superheroes challenge. Teams set their own targets and activities over one month raising £4,514 in total for CP Sport.
JMW the official fundraising partner to CP Sport had 4 teams involved (12 people), taking on a 500K challenge, wearing superhero costumes on the way. They raised £2,820 smashing their £2,000 target.
JMW are specialist clinical negligence solicitors with particular expertise in cerebral palsy.
Eddie Jones, head of medical negligence at law firm JMW and part of the At Home Superheroes fundraising team, said:
“This is the second time we have transformed into superheroes to raise money for CP Sport and I couldn’t be prouder of the team for covering more than 1,000 kilometres and raising such a fantastic amount. Without CP Sport so many people with cerebral palsy would be denied the opportunity to play sport and would miss out on the huge physical and mental benefits it brings. CP Sport is there to help people participate whatever their level of disability with specialist help and we are very happy to support their work for the cerebral palsy community”.
Other teams included Catherine’s Actually We Can Challenge who raised £1093.33 taking on skydiving as one of their challenges, and the Griffin family who raised £575.73 for their 450k cycling challenge – the equivalent from Worcester to Westminster Abbey and back.
The money donated to CP Sport through this challenge will help more people with cerebral palsy return to play safely and confidently. CP Sport will create opportunities through partnerships, which will provide more local support for people with cerebral palsy to take part in sport and physical activity.
