From the start of November, every week for seven weeks, Disability Sports Coach is releasing a Community Club participant’s story to encourage and excite their peers to be active, as part of their latest online campaign #MyStory.
The objective of the campaign is to give each individual a stage on which to share their involvement in physical activity and sport and motivate other members of their community, whether they are training for the next Olympic Games or now have the confidence to go job hunting. Each individual will then have the opportunity to meet and be inspired by Susie Rodgers, GB Paralympian and Rio2016 gold medalist, listening to her story and roach to success.
Susie Rodgers is backing #MyStory because she believes sharing your accomplishments and victories can inspire friends.
“#MyStory is a fantastic campa
ign to encourage people of all backgrounds to share their experiences and help those around them to find their potential. I was inspired to swim competitively by the British Paralympian’s at the 2008 Summer Games but we are often inspired most by those closest to us.
Reading each Community Club participant’s story really highlights the wider benefits of playing sport and being part of a club can bring; everyone should be proud of sharing their story.”
Read the first three #MyStory articles online now, starting with David who became active by joining his local Community Club, consequently improving his independence and gaining confidence to go job hunting.
