Join Team Whizz-Kidz and help children like Brody

Brody loves the buggy, you could see the difference in his face straight away! He is more comfortable and relaxed with it. The world can become smaller when you are disabled because of things being inaccessible. Having the right equipment can change everything. We wanted to thank you all for running the London Marathon for Whizz-Kidz and hope you will continue fundraising so more children like Brody can get the mobility equipment they need. Thank You!
