Sofia Crockatt (12) from Leyland, a Junior Ambassador for the charity Meningitis Research Foundation (MRF), is all set to lead several teams of superheroes at a fundraising triathlon this weekend.
The superhero triathlon is part of the Superhero Series - a UK disability sports series for the everyday superhero! The triathlon is the first-ever event from the series and looks set to be a fun, full-throttle challenge where people with disabilities call the shots. They can team up with disabled and non-disabled family and friends to swim, bike and push/run as little or as much as they dare.
There are around 2000 people involved in the Superhero Series and Sofia has been selected as one of only four Ambassadors for the series.
