With a real passion for building sport in society, as well as being a tireless campaigner for helping LGBT people to get into sport, Claire is a determined and proactive athlete and chair of Motivate East.
“In Summer 2012, London not only staged the greatest Paralympics ever, but most importantly changed a nation’s perception of disability. The focus was shifted from disability to ability. The world watched the greatest athletes and teams battle for gold. Heroes and role models were born.
Now, the real work needs to begin. Yes, a generation was inspired, but they will soon forget. We need to make sure that everyone who wants to have the opportunity to partake in sport and leisure is given that opportunity. Not everyone wants to be a future Paralympian, but everyone has the right to access sport and to enjoy the benefits it brings.”
Regarded as a legend in Paralympic athletics, we’re proud to call Danny a Motivate East ambassador.
