Challenge 75 started with a simple statistic – “across the UK there are an estimated 75,000 young wheelchair users”. We wanted to find a way to both support and celebrate these amazing young people...from this Challenge 75 was born.
Whizz-Kidz believes that children shouldn’t be waiting for their childhoods to start, as they struggle to get a wheelchair that meets all their needs. We believe that every young disabled person has the right to a fun and active childhood, and the chance to develop their full potential in life. We provide disabled children and young people with vital mobility equipment and life skills. This gives them the opportunity to build friendships and the training to help them gain skills for a brighter future.
By creating Challenge 75 we are raising money to help us continue to change the lives of young disabled people – by running, jogging, walking or pushing your chair for 75 minutes you can help us to do this.
Whizz-Kidz has already supported over 4,500 children and young people in the last 5 years but we want to reach thousands more!
