Bike Bath – Chris Santon
Jul 2 all-day

On the 2nd of July Chris will be completing Bike Bath in aid of CRPS UK, a 50 mile cycling event in and around Bath, Somerset and Wiltshire. You can support him and us by clicking here

Chris says:

My wife, Katy, has suffered from CRPS in her hand for around 2 1/2 years and is in pain constantly. She has started to get use back into her thumb after going to a rehabilitation clinic at the Royal National Hospital of Rheumatic Diseases in Bath. Since then she has been able to pick items up such as pens and cups.

Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS) is a poorly understood condition in which a person experiences persistent severe and debilitating pain.

Although most cases of CRPS are triggered by an injury, the resulting pain is much more severe and longer lasting.

Any donation would be welcomed and will help people (including Katy) who have CRPS.

What is Superhero Tri?

It’s big. It’s bold. It’s gutsy. It’s the UK’s one and only disability sport event for the everyday Superhero and their family and friends! CRPS UK is a charity friend and we have a number of places for individuals or teams to take part.

Time to team up or go solo

Unite with family and friends to take on a stage each of a Superhero Tri challenge – that’s a swim, a bike and a push/run. Anyone can enter, as long as there’s at least one person with a disability per team. You can have a team of up to three members, one doing each leg of the tri plus if you can also bring a ‘Sidekick’ to push, guide or simply accompany any member of your team around the course if you wish. Or do it solo!
