CP Sport and LimbPower Launch Their Virtual Challenge Series
Posted: Thu, 30 Jul 2020 15:30
CP Sport and LimbPower have launched a Virtual Challenge series for people with physical disabilities to participate in with their families. The fun participation event taking place between August 2020 and January 2021 consists of 3 themed challenges which each last for a month. Participants can enter for one challenge or the full series.
Participants will be sent a starter pack (postal or electronically) which includes a progress record form. After completing each challenge, they will need to send in their progress record form. They will receive a medal for each challenge they complete, and for completing the full series (all three challenges) participants will receive a T-shirt.
For each challenge, participants can set themselves their own personal target linked to that month's particular theme. Below are some examples of targets ideas participants could choose for each theme or use to create their own:
15th August – 15th September – Distance – how far can you cover taking part in your chosen activities Walking/Running/Jogging to reach a personally set distance.
15th October –15th November – Time – Complete an accumulated 24 hours of activity over 2 months (30 mins for 48 days). Over 2 months can you record a new personal best time for travelling a particular distance eg 1k.
15th December -15th January – Number – how many can you complete of a certain skills challenge e.g Football kick ups, dribbles, skills, tennis ball keepy ups etc.
Each challenge costs £10 for CP Sport members and £12.50 for non – members. The series (all 3 challenges) is £20 for members and £25 for non.
Participants with Cerebral Palsy can register on the CP Sport website and amputees, or those with any other physical disability can do so via Eventbrite. Registration for each challenge will close on the 14th of the month, the day prior to the start of challenge (15th).
