Sign up for free, make a change this January and also help change the lives of people paralysed by Spinal Cord Injury.
Every eight hours someone is paralysed by a Spinal Cord Injury and there is currently no cure. By signing up today for the Aspire swimming challenge you can guarantee you'll be making a difference!
This year, Aspire Channel Swimmers will fund dozens of Aspire Grants, which help fund wheelchairs, sports equipment and assistive technology. You’ll also help fund our essential Welfare Benefits Advice Service to ensure that people receive the benefits that they’re entitled to and our Independent Living Advisors so that newly injured patients have someone to speak to.
Aspire receives no government funding, so every penny you raise is extremely important to us.
