Hi there

Me and my friends from the wheelchair racing team are thinking about a charity run for a local school for children with cerebral palsy.
We think about a run in pairs always a wheelchair user and a walking person in one team running together to show the equlity of disabled and non-disabled people. there where voices in our team that this would imply that wheelies can only run with non-disabled people.
Now, im wondering what you guys think about that. is that a good idea? (Hint: Say yes!)

Cheers

Hi Richie

I also like the idea as long as the pedestrian icon_wink.gif runs beside you, not behind you and holding the bars of your wheelchair. that would look like he/she is pushing you.
are you participating in your racing wheelchair? Then, no pedestrian has ANY chance to keep up with you!! icon_lol.gif icon_lol.gif

Cheers
