Whizz-Kidz have launched a social media campaign challenging the public to show how they’ve conquered their own limits.
Supported by Whizz-Kidz Patron Ed Balls, #NoLimitz encourages people of all ages and abilities to think about how they’ve overcome their own limitations – physical or otherwise – to achieve their very best in whatever they set their mind to.
At its heart, the campaign celebrates – and fundraises to support – the ways in which the equipment and life skills services provided by Whizz-Kidz help disabled children and young people not only see beyond, but live beyond their perceived limitations.
People of all ages, all abilities, disabled and non-disabled are being asked to take part by sharing a short video, story or photographs showing how they’ve overcome a personal challenge or limitation. They’re also encouraged to make a small donation of £3 by texting NOLIMITZ to 70300.
The #NoLimitz campaign launches with a heart-warming video of Whizz-Kidz beneficiary and Ambassador Ruby, who with her mum Lisa, and Whizz-Kidz therapist Sarah, demonstrates how the right piece of equipment has made the impossible possible for her.
In the video, Ruby’s mum Lisa says:
“Sarah saw through the limitations of Ruby’s disability and saw that with a chair she would be able to do everything that we would like her to do, and that she wanted to do, and that there are no limits.”
Whizz-Kidz Patron, Ed Balls is supporting the campaign. He said:
“Whizz-Kidz is a charity which gives kids the confidence to know that, even though they’re dealing with real challenges in life due to their disability, they can do things they’d never imagined before.
“Whizz Kidz teaches kids that there are no limits to their ambition, their creativity and their achievement, and that’s why I’m backing the campaign.”
Ruth Owen, Chief Executive of Whizz-Kidz, said:
“This campaign will challenge – in a really positive way – the idea that disabled children and young people are defined by what they cannot do, rather than what they can. But it’s open for everyone, and we hope people across the UK – old, young, disabled and non-disabled – share their stories of pushing themselves beyond their limits, and achieving something really special.”
