Road to Monrovia: We are in Spain but plenty of distance to go

As we write our 4500 mile sponsored cycle has reached the gates of San Sebastian in Spain thanks to the collective efforts of everyone to date.

All over the UK and in other parts of the world, our supporters are putting in the miles to complete the symbolic journey and help us to raise £4500!

Our patron, Raquel Cassidy, who will be at the Family Funday on the 23rd June has made this short film to ask for your support in the last month!

Full details of how you can get involved are on the EVENTS page of this website.

The Special Olympics Legacy

Following the unqualified success Liberia enjoyed at the recent Special Olympics, they are now in receipt of a small grant that enables even more young people to enjoy the benefit of sport at organised training camps.

The recent Easter Camp is pictured below, an opportunity for our 3 Olympians to join other youngsters in having fun and, maybe, the start of finding new champions for the next Olympiad in Germany?

A very Special Olympics

Liberia’s outstanding achievement in Abu Dhabi is making news all over the world. 3 golds and a bronze in their first ever Olympiad, with each competing athlete getting a gold. The pictures below tell the story beautifully and we will be putting together a film to commemorate their achievements in the near future.

"You wait for one bus......................"

Liberia, a country that has never won any Olympic Medal of any sort, has today won a 2nd Gold Medal at the Special Olympics. Congratulations to HASSATOUS ODELL DUAH (pictured below). Tooose won gold in the 100 metres.
