National law firm, Irwin Mitchell proudly supported the Superhero Series, the exciting new mass-participation inclusive sports event for the everyday Superhero. The first ever Superhero Series event took place on Saturday 19 August at Dorney Lake, Windsor.
Founded by Paralympian, Sophia Warner, Superhero Series is a not-for-profit initiative giving total beginners through to elite athletes the chance to find their inner superpower and achieve an inspirational goal. The first event was a huge success which celebrated over 1,500 Everyday Superheroes at the atmospheric event.
Irwin Mitchell, who have offices all over the UK, were one of the event’s official partners and supported the Superhero Tri as part of their Don’t Quit, Do It campaign to encourage more of the UK’s 12 million disabled people to get involved with sport.
Neil Whiteley, head of the serious injury team at Irwin Mitchell said:
“The Superheroes Series Tri was a fantastic and inspirational event. The competitors were all so positive and there were so many people there to cheer them on and support them. We had several clients taking part and they found it to be an enjoyable and emotional day.
“One of our clients, Ed Buckley who has fought back from being left in a coma after a serious accident, managed a 400m swim, 10k bike and 2.5k run. Seeing people able to get their lives back on track with specialist help and support, as well as family and friends, is what it is all about.”
