We’re asking people across the country to spend the day using a wheelchair to raise awareness and funds for Back Up. We know that using a wheelchair for a day will never give a full insight into life as a wheelchair user, but it opens up discussions about the challenges wheelchair users face and what people can do to make positive changes in terms of accessibility.
”Roadworks and crossings were difficult. The pot holes were challenging and there was not enough time to cross the high street before the lights changed. I went for a coffee but could not reach the counter to pay.”
It’s a powerful way to get people involved and supportive of Back Up’s work. By taking part in this challenge, you could raise funds for our wheelchair skills sessions and others services that make an enormous difference to the lives of many people affected by spinal cord injury.
How does it work?
Firstly, you’ll need to complete a registration form and pay the appropriate fee.
Then, once you’ve sourced a wheelchair, the challenge is to spend a day experiencing some of the things that come up when you’re using a wheelchair day-to-day.
Where and when?
You can take on the Back Up Wheelchair Challenge whenever you choose and anywhere you like – at your office, school, at home – to make it fit in with your lifestyle.
