EMPOWERING WOMEN IN DISABILITY SPORT
be part of our journey
"As one person I can not change the world, but I can change the world of one person". Anita Choudhrie - Founder
Path to Success is supporting women in disability sport as they seek to achieve their dream of winning a Paralympic Medal.
Despite the success of the London 2012 Paralympics, disability sport in the UK continues to be underfunded. This forces many talented athletes to either generate their own funding, or give up on their dream.
Our mission is to secure the legacy of disability sport in the UK and inspire a new generation of British female Paralympic stars.
In celebration of International Women’s Day on March 8th 2018, we announced the launch of our campaign #PathtoTokyo2020, which supports & empowers female athletes as they seek to achieve their dream of competing in the 2020 Tokyo Paralympics & Beyond. Financial support provided by Path to Success will help to cover the cost of coaching, training, equipment, travel and tournaments.
Path to Success is supporting athletes in Para Powerlifting, Wheelchair Basketball, Wheelchair Tennis and Para Badminton.
Wheelchair basketball is amongst 5th highest sport participated by women. In 2016 Rio games 120 female and 143 male (45.60% female) participated from 15 countries.
Para-Powerlifting is one of the fastest growing Paralympic sports which made its debut in 1964. In 2016 Rio games, 78 female and 101 male (43.6% female) participated from 60 countries.
Wheelchair Tennis like many other sports has great impact on the life and body. A popular and expensive sport. In 2016 Rio games 32 female and 68 male (32%) participated from 29 countries.
Badminton will make its Paralympic Games debut at Tokyo 2020. Badminton is a sport that anyone can take part and enjoy.
