Law Firm Proud To Partner With UK’s One And Only Disability Sports Series
Irwin Mitchell is proud to once again be named as an official partner of Superhero Series, which offers unique events that throw out restrictive rules and regulations to allow people with every kind of disability to take part in gutsy sporting challenges at the world-class Dorney Lake in Windsor.
The law firm is a major champion of all disability sports through its Don’t Quit, Do It campaign to raise awareness and participation. Many of the firm’s clients who have suffered serious illness or injury have seen huge benefits in using sport as part of their recovery and rehabilitation.
The Series’ next event, Superhero Tri, takes place on 18 August and encourages participants with all kinds of disabilities to take part in solo or team tri challenges with as much or as little support as they need.
There is also a celebrity race, which features high-profile stars from sport and screen, and all kinds of entertainment and activities throughout the day, ensuring both participants and spectators have a super-sized fun day out. Irwin Mitchell will be showcasing its disability football challenge for attendees to tackle.
There are three distances to choose from in all, from the Sprint Superhero Tri, a 150m swim, 3k bike ride and 1k run or push, right up to the Full Superhero Tri, which features a 750m swim, 20k bike and 5k run.
Expert Opinion“It’s truly inspirational to see all the participants cross the line whether they have been able to complete the challenge themselves or with support of friends and family.
