About Us

Get Kids Going! is a National charity which gives disabled children and young people - up to the age of 26 yrs - the wonderful opportunity of participating in sport. We provide them with specially built sports' wheelchairs so they can do: athletics, marathons, tennis, skiing, rugby, sailing, boccia, basketball, sledge hockey, table tennis, fencing, shooting, archery, powerlifting and many more sports. Get Kids Going! inspires British disabled youngsters to compete in sporting events, from start to paralympic level, by giving them 'sports grants' to help with their; training, physiotherapy, travel, competition fees, design and development of sports' wheelchairs etc. With your help many can become world record holders and paralympic champions!

Our aim is to give support to all our budding paralympians in the build up to the London 2012 Paralympic games and beyond. Like any aspiring athletes all our youngsters need long term support, often over many years, to achieve their sporting dreams. Sadly, we are aware of cuts in funding for such youngsters of up to £50m, from government and other sources, and so many of our youngsters are forced to rely on friends and family for financial help. As you can imagine this causes enormous burdens on many, already cash strapped, families and a constant worry as the cost of participating in their favourite sport is forever increasing.

There are over 200 disabled talented youngsters who have the potential to compete at London 2012 but receive either none or very little funding and are desperate to achieve their life-long dream. With your help, together we can turn their dreams into reality and help make them into sporting heroes!
