Team Panathlon included colleagues from John Lewis Stratford, Teamcore, Link FX, Bilko and a range of individuals, all supporting the Panathlon Charity, one of which was Carol Park, a teacher from Southview School in Witham who have enthusiastically competed in Panathlon for the last 5 years. Carol said, “I have experienced first hand, the opportunities, experiences and fun the Panathlon provides for young people with a range of special needs. The sports which are so carefully adapted to ensure that all can take part, give young disabled people the chance to compete and feel successful in sport. ” Carol is pictured (right) having completed in a speedy 1.53.47 and beating over 10,000 runners! Well done you!
