Let's campaign for a sporting chance
“Sport has always been a big part of my life, and is something I believe the whole community can benefit from. That’s why I’d encourage as many people as possibly to get involved at a local level with Scope’s campaign to give disabled people a sporting chance in the run-up to 2012.” Scope patron Ade Adepitan MBE.
Sport, whether you take part or prefer just to watch, brings communities together. All over the world sport has the power to break down barriers of race, religion, background and disability. Sport can change lives.
However, there’s no denying that even in 2012 getting involved in sport can be an uphill struggle for many disabled people.
In the run-up to the Olympics, Scope wants to make sure as many disabled people are able to enjoy sport at whatever level they wish – as a professional athlete, a keen amateur or as one of the thousands of visitors to the 2012 site itself in London.
We want to make sure that this festival of sporting achievement is accessible to all – sporting inclusion matters!
You can help create this change by sending a clear message to MPs, the Olympics Minister and to the general public that sporting inclusion matters.
