WE EMPOWER GB FEMALE ATHLETES IN DISABILITY SPORT ON THEIR PATH TO PARALYMPICS & BEYOND
INSPIRE THEIR DREAMS OF BRINGING HOME A MEDAL
In Support of GB Female Athletes in Disability Sport on their Path to Paris Paralympics 2024.
WHAT WE DO
Founded in 2006, Path to Success is a UK’s leading Disability Charity and has always supported Disability in various ways. “Empowering GB Female Athletes in Disability Sport” is at the heart of Path to Success, providing sponsorship to TALENTED GB WOMEN PARA ATHLETES on their Path to Paralympics & Beyond, in 4 major Disability Sports: Wheelchair Basketball, Para Badminton, Wheelchair Tennis and Para Powerlifting.
Many disabled Athletes have to self-fund majority of their sporting career to compete at the Professional and Paralympic level. The yearly cost of playing as a professional Para Athlete are anywhere from £19,000 -£50,000 per annum. This covers cost of coaching, equipment, tournaments and travel.
There is still a huge gulf in recognition, sponsorship and financial support received by Para Athletes compare to able body athletes, and we want to ‘Continue Making a Difference’. Being one of the only charities in the UK supporting Female Athletes in Disability Sport has made us more determined than ever to carry on our support for the Athletes on their Path to Paralympics 2024 in Paris & Beyond.
WE WANT TO CONTINUE:
Raising funds to FINANCIALLY support GB Female Para Athletes in their training and competition costs
Reduce the STRESS of financial commitments for Para Athletes, where their focus can solely be on training
Increase AWARNESS of Disability Sport
Be able to SUPPORT more aspiring Female Para Athletes
to all Team GB team members for achieving such amazing results in Tokyo Paralympics
"As one person I can not change the world, but I can change the world of one person".
It has always been my wish to help ‘Women in Disability Sport, Turning their dreams into reality. With this challenge and philosophy, Path to Success has touched the tender lives of many Female Paralympians. We embrace their process of transformation and help inspire and empower. Path to Success is determined to raise awareness about disability sport and shortage of funding. We want to Make a Difference by shining a spotlight on this issue.
I feel privileged to support these amazing Women. Your understanding the dream of these spectacular, dedicated and skilled Women on Their Path to Paris 2024 & Beyond is a milestone. Please help in fulfilling Their Dreams. Let’s together support these stars of today and make a Tangible Difference to the perception of Disability Sport in the UK.
