May 2017 | LimbPower offers double sporting fun for young people in 2017
NATIONAL charity LimbPower is pleased to announce they will host two events for young amputees and children with physical impairments in 2017.  
On Saturday June 24, LimbPower will bring the Junior Games to Birmingham - a new date on their sporting calendar. Then on Saturday September 30 the Games return to Stoke Mandeville Stadium in Buckinghamshire.  
For many years, the LimbPower Junior Games has provided children and young people with a great opportunity try out new sports and activities in a fun, friendly and supportive environment. LimbPower is delighted to expand their events programme this year and take the Junior Games to Birmingham for the first time.  
The Games are open to children and young people aged five to eighteen with a physical impairment. Sports and activities on offer this year will include climbing, wheelchair basketball, track and field athletics, cycling, sitting volleyball, tennis, archery and football (subject to change). For many participants, the Junior Games is one of the first opportunities they have to try out lots of different activities. 
Debbie, mother of a Junior Games participant, said: 'The Junior Games is such a confidence booster for Anna. She's made friends and learned sports she would ever have tried without it. It's even inspired her to join an athletics club.'  
Chief executive of LimbPower, Kiera Roche, added: 'Expanding the Junior Games is part of LimbPower's plan to reach more children with an amputation or limb impairment across the country, giving them an opportunity to try new activities in a safe and friendly environment amongst their peers.' 
This year's Junior Games events are proudly supported by Douglas Bader Foundation, Leigh Day, Ottobock, Dorset Orthopaedic and Axis (powered by Ottobock).  
Event details are:  
Saturday June 24 - LimbPower Junior Games Birmingham, at Small Heath Wellbeing Centre.  
Saturday September 30 - LimbPower Junior Games Stoke Mandeville, at Stoke Mandeville Stadium.
