A Physiotherapist at The Robert Jones and Agnes Hunt Orthopadic is on a mission to persuade adventurous patients, colleagues – and anyone wanting to lend their support – to take part in a daring but fun-filled triathlon challenge.
Amy Wyatt, a Physio who works on the Midland Centre for Spinal Injuries (MCSI) at RJAH, is trying to sign up as many patients, their friends and families as possible, as well her colleagues to participate in the Superhero Tri Challenge, which is taking place this year on Saturday 17 August.
Dubbed as “big, bold and gutsy”, the Superhero Tri is an exciting disability sports event, which takes place in Buckinghamshire. The event is for anyone that considers themselves to have a disability, as well as their friends and family members.
The Superhero Tri is a swim, cycle, and push/run triathlon. Amy, who volunteered at the event last year, said the atmosphere on the day is “absolutely amazing”.
She said: “It’s an absolutely fantastic event, with a really special atmosphere, which is what prompted me to get involved again this year – but in a more challenging role. Not only will I be taking part myself, I’m also in the process of recruiting patients, their friends, family and colleagues of mine.
“Those of us from RJAH who will be taking part will be raising funds for the hospital’s charity – the RJAH Charity.”
