Inspiring and supporting young people seriously injured through sport

Ed Jackson climbs Snowdon

This Easter weekend Ed Jackson climbed Snowdon raising funds for Restart.

Following a spinal cord injury in April last year that left Ed paralysed from below the neck, he summited Mount Snowdon within 12 months of being told he may never walk again.

In the week Ed was named as this year’s RPA Blyth Spirit Award recipient to be presented at the RPA Awards dinner in May he has achieved this milestone raising over £13,000 for Restart in the process.

Foundation Founder Matt Hampson and beneficiary Henry Fraser have both won the Blyth Spirit Award in recent years and Ed joins an impressive list of recipients who all of whom have very inspiring stories to tell.

Foundation Supporter Gary Davies from Wilmott Dixon was one of many supporters who joined Ed on his trek this weekend.

We look forward to welcoming Ed to the Get Busy Living Centre sometime soon.
