Kizzy Blue Wade, 11, suffers from Spastic Quadriplegic Cerebral Palsy affecting all of her limbs, although her legs are affected the most.

Despite her disability, Kizzy strives to excel in anything she participates in especially in sports with being a disabled athlete in swimming, powerchair football, wheelchair racing and her new favourite sport Skiing.

The 11-year-old has taken upon herself a challenge to push her wheelchair racing chair across the three main bridges in England across consecutive Sundays. Kizzy has already pushed herself across the Severn Bridge in Wales and the Firth Road Bridge in Scotland.

Kizzy hopes to complete her challenge on Sunday 27th March by pushing herself across the Humber Bridge which she states will be hard. She said: “It’s going to be hard, so not really looking forward to it, more looking forward to seeing if I can do it.

She continued: “Having my own Sit Ski would be amazing and allow me to be comfortable and then hopefully forget about the equipment and get on with learning to ski as good as I can. I’m hoping to take part in a small race series in the future.”

Kizzy will be pushing herself in her wheelchair racing chair this Sunday 27th March across the Humber bridge starting at 1pm Grimsby end of the bridge where she will be heading towards Hull.
