STORY FROM THE PARENT OF A SPECIAL OLYMPIC ATHLETE
I often see how sports training can change a Special Olympians life, by improving fitness, giving independence and empowerment. I've also seen how it can change the life of the carer too. Each time a trainee comes to the bike club or for their Special Olympics training, they often come with their carer.
For a parent, seeing their child succeed is a time of emotion and pride. One such parent has been coming with her son for over two years. It's a fun time she shares with her son, but also a time for herself too. Listen to her story here.

On the 27th April, I will be cycling with my friend Siobhan from London to Malmo for the Eurovision Song Contest. I will be raising money for a charity close to my heart – Special Olympics GB. Any donations big or small, will be really appreciated.
