Inspired by her Grandfather's philanthropy and her own passion and experience for charity, Founder Anita Choudhrie MBE established Path to Success in London in 2005.
Path to Success (PTS) is a charity built upon passion, dedication and empathy. We strive to bring success and positive empowerment to those who live challenged lives. Our vision is to share goodwill within the United Kingdom and overseas to help individuals overcome their difficulties.
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
