One Man, One Leg, One Bike
This weekend, Saturday 14th July, Paralympian Scott Moorhouse who represented Great Britain at the 2012 Paralympic Games in London will embark on a gruelling challenge to cycle from Lands End to John O’Groats in just one week.
Scott has already raised a staggering £4,435.99 for his chosen chairty LimbPower, A National Disability Sports Organisation working to engage individuals with limb loss and or limb difference in physical activity and sport.
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 has chosen to raise money for LimbPower 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!”.
