#ImInToo Cara Centre, Launched Ireland’s first ever Sport Inclusion Disability Charter in conjunction with Sport Ireland. It outlines 5 key areas people with disability are asking organisations to consider in making active and healthy lifestyles possible for them. Here, myself and my wonderful son James share our story

Team James was formed in January 2016 when my son, James, decided to turn his rehab into a charity event to raise money for Barretstown. The initiative has gone from strength to strength ever since and I am very proud of what everyone associated with Team James has achieved over the last number of years.

Follow our progress
