Winners

Inspiring Junior Athlete Award

Arctic One (Charity) was launched in November 2011 and aims to give opportunities to both able bodied and disabled people to enable them to “Get Involved” in Sport and also to explore the benefits of sport on cancer-related diseases.

In the first year they developed the Charity extensively including holding the First Junior Para Triathlon in the UK as well as raising over £10,000 to provide opportunities for disabled people to get into sport. From there they have gone from strength to strength and organised the first mass participation Para Triathlon in the UK in 2014, which grew again in 2015.

The junior Para Triathlon has also grown in numbers year on year and it is fantastic to give juniors the opportunity to try Triathlon for free. In 2015, they launched a Forward Motion Grant System which enabled us to give grants to over 30 different people to enable them to pursue their sport including funding prosthetics and equipment.

We are very proud to partner with Arctic One to support the Inspiring Junior Athlete Award and as our named Charity recipient of our Community Interest Company Asset Lock.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

In 2014 money raised from race entries, fundraisers and donations was used to fund a Prosthetic Running Blade for 12 year old Award winner James Davey (Picture left). The 2015 award was given jointly to 7 year olds Rio Woolf and Euan Murray who have both shown great courage and determination at both the Junior Para Tri in Chesham and at the Dorney Lake Tri and Para Tri festival in June.
