Panathlon is a charity that provides sporting opportunities to over 10,000 disabled young people every year

 Over 500 schools across the country take part in ‘mini Paralympic’ multi-sport competitions for secondary or primary school children, along with dedicated football, boccia and swimming programmes. Panathlon has in the last few years trained thousands of young leaders (1,590 in 2016) aged 14-19, who act as sports officials for Panathlon competitions.

  • On behalf of our children at Girlington Primary School for a fantastic Panathlon experience. The activities were well thought through, taking into consideration a variety of disabilities. Our children thoroughly enjoyed themselves and memories were made. The whole event ran like clockwork which added to the enjoyment. We are already looking forward to next year.

    Amanda Simpson, a teacher at Girlington Primary, Bradford
  • Watching Tom Daley before was just awesome. I love Panathlon because when I get frustrated or angry, it makes me feel free just to run or swim and forget everything else.

    Melissa Fletcher, aged 16, Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk
  • You’ve got children here that don’t particularly gel very well and to walk away with the trophy as regional champions is a pretty awesome achievement. It’s a reward for teamwork.

    Jane Chave, PE teacher at Priory School, Bury, part of the Suffolk team to win the East Regional Final.
  • One of our children said it was the first time he’d ever won anything in sport.

    Shirley Bond, PE coordinator at Stratton School, Gloucestershire
  • It’s brilliant. It’s a fantastic event and an ideal opportunity for our students. There are so many learning opportunities today: just to travel here, getting changed in a different environment, social skills, meeting different people, listening to instructions that they have to follow. They’ve done really well.

    Kuben Reddy, teacher at Doucecroft School, Colchester
  • I’ve been coming to Panathlon events for years and what never ceases to amaze me is how much enjoyment the athletes get from the competition and how competitive they are. But what is truly amazing is how the event has now grown. With over 200 events a year now, Panathlon really has cemented itself in the sporting calendar.

    Danny Crates, Paralympic gold medallist and world record holder in the 800m (T46) and Panathlon patron
  • I don’t do any sport other than Panathlon. It is my world!  I’m leaving school to go to college so this is my last competition and I’m really sad, but I have had a fantastic time over the last few years, especially the years that we won!

    Charlotte Whale, aged 19, Ashford, Kent
  • Panathlon is an extremely important competition. We have brought children along today who really worry about new things. Coming here gives them an opportunity to overcome their anxieties and take part in a wide range of fun activities whilst representing their borough.

    Jon White, PE Teacher and Inclusion Lead at Clare Mount Specialist Sports College, Merseyside
  • Panathlon is brilliant. I’ve been coming here since the age of nine and enjoy it every year. I take part in the wheelchair slalom and the relay races. I love racing against others.

    Jo Makumbi, aged 15, West Lea School, Enfield
  • It feels like heaven, this is what pure enjoyment feels like, It being Columbus’s first every victory just makes it that more sweet.

    Gabriel Ellis, captain of the Columbus team
