Speaker: Sky Sports Ambassador, Ambassador, Sky Sports Living for Sport
Hot off the heels of the incredible success of the Brazil Olympics, Sky Sports continue to roll out their inspirational Living for Sport programme in conjunction with the Youth Sport Trust. Come and find out about the Six Keys to Success - and how these can impact on target groups such as boys’ underachievement, SEND - or whole-school. As highlighted Aaron was a key figure in the Wheelchair Rugby team at the London 2012 Paralympic Games but he is also an inspirational person that has achieved some amazing things. In May 2016, Aaron completed the first disability unassisted Kilimanjaro Climb. It took him six days to reach the summit, using a specially adapted wheelchair but due to the terrain and problems with his chair he had to crawl large parts of it (including the final ascent to the summit) on his hands and knees. The footage is amazing!
