Superheroes Winter Wonderland Adventure Report – 18 December


Who? ‘Want a Be’ Superheroes with LTHC’s/Disabilities

What? Racking up the miles on a virtual trek around the world to deliver to some top cities!

When? Through from the 20 November until the 6 December

Where? In houses, gyms, outdoor spaces and anywhere you can exercise!

Why? To help motivate, inspire and support people to access sport and exercise on their own level, but to be part of a team.

How? A combination of sport, exercise and sensory actions, converted into KM’s and added to the team total. Utilising as many aids and resources as needed, including those extra special sidekick supporters!

So The Superhero Winter Wonder Land powered by Marvel is Over. So we have reached the finishing line-virtually! The Challenge Is Complete! Four Great Teams! One super impressive group of eight Disability Sports Ambassadors, representing Essex as part of Team Billy.

Check out all the action from the challenge in this blog here!

COVID-19 Strategy and Recovery

Although it feels unlikely and the news is overwhelming, trying to stay informed but not becoming obsessed with COVID-19 is a tough task for anyone to avoid or manage.
