Please help disabled young people play and enjoy sport by nominating the Panathlon Challenge as your ‘Charity of the Year’ for 2018.
No matter how big or small your company is, your employees can contribute to the lives of young disabled people, who have far fewer opportunities than most to enjoy a sporting life.
The Panathlon Challenge is a charity with a twenty two year history and now provides sporting opportunities to over 13,000 disabled young people a year.
In 2016/17, children from over 800 schools took part in 305 days of activity including ‘mini Paralympic’ competitions, with more than 95,000 active hours of sport provided.
We have a development plan to be nationwide by 2020, we are currently delivering in 33 counties in England.
The charity also provides expert coaching courses and sports equipment and has trained over 6,500 Young Leaders who act as sports officials for Panathlon competitions.
Recent independent research found that over 85% of those disabled young people involved in Panathlon saw improvements in motivation, teamwork and skills. There are many ‘non-sporting’ benefits achieved as a by-product of giving young disabled people confidence to perform.
By choosing to support Panathlon, your company could make a massive impact and help us expand further, offering many more tangible benefits direct to young disabled people across the country. Help us to provide them with:
* ‘Mini Paralympic’ multi- sports competitions
* Specialised sports equipment
* Medals and trophies as rewards
* Specialised team kit (with branding opportunities)
* Expert coaching sessions
Your company can give a massive boost to disabled youngsters by choosing Panathlon as your chosen charity for:
* Fundraising Events
* Corporate donations and matched giving
* Employee payroll giving
* Focus for sponsored fundraising activities by staff
* Volunteering opportunities
Please support Panathlon. Your donations will make a huge difference and allow us to enhance the lives of more disabled young people every year.
