The Stoke Mandeville Spinal Research Superhero Team is counting down to the big day where they pull together all their combined superhero powers, to take on the epic Superhero Tri Challenge at Dorney Lake, Windsor, on Saturday 20th August!

Super Sophie (& family), Captain Peter, and Poison Ivy Heidi, will be taking on a tri challenge to include a wheelie run, bike, scoot or swim. All participants can choose their challenges and their distance, and will take part in a team relay.

Commenting on why they're getting involved in support of Stoke Mandeville Spinal Research, spokeswoman Poison Ivy (Heidi Herkes) commented:

"Our aim is to raise as much money as possible for this incredible charity who are developing solutions for three main issues that people living with spinal cord Injury suffer from on a daily basis: Debilitating bladder infections, chronic nerve pain and developing technologies for upper limb movement that would be utterly life changing for people like me.

I’ve been paralysed for 8 years, so If I could raise £1 for every year I’ve had my Injury - a total of £8 per person or whatever you can afford, I would be forever grateful!

Here’s to enabling people living with disabilities not just to live normal lives but extraordinary ones!

Thank you for anything you can give to support me, and this fantastic charity!"
