People with Disabilities Power Up for Superhero Series Event

Winter Wonderwheels powered by Marvel returns to Dorney Lake in Windsor on Sunday (December 3) to mark International Day of Persons with Disabilities.

The super-fun event will bring people with any kind of disability together for their choice of three super missions – 1km, 5km or 10km - at the iconic 2012 Paralympic venue.

Winter Wonderwheels is part of the mass participation Superhero Series, a sporting event for people with disabilities, together with their families or friends.

Participants can choose between flying solo or teaming up with ‘Sidekicks’ (family & friends) to take on the unique challenges with as much or as little time and support as needed.

With a huge emphasis on fun, Winter Wonderwheels encourages participants to come along dressed as their favourite Superhero, with a dash of festive sparkle!

During the day, there’s also a celebrity-led mission ‘Celebrity Wonderwheels’ that invites Superheroes to take part with stars of sport and screen. This year’s event sees escapologist Jonathan Goodwin, Paralympic equestrian champion Sophie Christiansen; Paralympic wheelchair basketball athlete, Amy Conroy; Paralympic canoeist, Anne Usher; Paralympic field athlete Stephen Miller; GB Wheelchair Rugby Paralympic champion; Kylie Grimes and Master adventurer Jamie Gane leading competition winners in their very own teams as they complete the course.

Like all Superhero Series events, it throws out restrictive rules and regs, encouraging Superheroes to use any ‘gadgets & gismos’ they wish on the course, from day chairs and bikes to walking frames and trikes.

And if you can’t make it in person there’s an ‘At Home’ version of the event.
