SIL 25 Year 25K Miles Challenge
SIL marks a significant milestone this year; 2021. 25 years of delivering care and support in Herefordshire and so, we’ve set ourselves an exciting challenge and we’d like your help.
Walk, swim, run, roll, scoot, cycle, kayak, canoe, geocaching, or try all of them, whatever your choice of exercise we want you to join us in trying to achieve 25,000 miles between 1st April 2021 and 31st March 2022.
We would welcome anyone who is a SIL supporter, Staff, Trustees, people we support, family and friends to take part or you can support us by donating to Megan Baker House via our JustGiving page – info to follow.
As the challenge progresses we hope people will share their stories in words, pictures, or video, so that we can add it to our blog, highlight great achievements in our newsletters and bulletins.
We want to make the challenge as accessible as possible, so would welcome input from anyone with mobility or access needs that would like to try a new activity and we will see what we can do to make it happen.
Megan Baker House runs sessional services for adults and children with neurological motor disorders like Cerebral Palsy, Dyspraxia, Parkinson’s, Acquired Brain Injuries and Multiple Sclerosis. Some of the people we support have similar motor disorders so we know how important these services are. If you would like to find out more go to: https://www.meganbakerhouse.org.uk/
