Paralympian Scott Moorhouse who represented Great Britain at the 2012 Paralympic Games in London will embark on a week long journey to cycle from Lands End to John O’Groats in July 2018.
Sport has played a powerful role in helping Moorhouse to overcome his disability. It has given him a goal and a focus, and equally the confidence that having one leg will not hold him back!
It is with this thought in mind that he is looking to raise money for the National Disability Sport Organisation and national charity LimbPower, a UK charity who offer relief to the physically disabled by aiding rehabilitation and improving the quality of life through the medium of recreational and competitive sports and arts.
Moorhouse said: “I haven’t really cycled much since doing my paper round many years ago so this really is a steep ask. For those that know me also are aware I will be doing this as an amputee with one leg – just to add another dimension!”.
