reflexblue was delighted to be a part of the third 12 km wheelchair challenge and be able to support disability clubs in this exhilarating and cheerful occasion.
The event took place on a beautiful sunny day on Saturday 20th June 2015. Around 70 people, young and old, from four local volunteer clubs including Dunbartonshire Disability Sport Club, Riverside Football Club, Sporting Judo Club ALBA & Dumbarton District Disabled Children’s Forum who organises activities for people with disabilities were set off to a 12km wheelchair relay from Dumbarton East Station to Clydebank Shopping Centre.
After three and a half hours of sweat, sometimes tears, one or two blisters and lots of laughs the participants were welcomed in Clydebank Shopping Centre by a crowd of supporters. The reflexblue – Wheelchair Challenge managed to raise £1000 for the three clubs. All clubs expressed great gratitude for reflexblue support for the organising committee, expertise given and donation of the T-shirts.
The plans for next year’s reflexblue – Wheelchair Challenge have already started. The interest towards this event has been growing and bringing wider number of participants as well as bigger crowds of supporters every year, reflexblue is looking forward to the future events.
