SportHeals was founded when a relay team training to cross the Channel decided to start a charity to support disabled sports.
After becoming frustrated with the lengthy process of obtaining Gift Aid registration, we decided to start by fundrasing
for a charity already successfully supporting the grassroots of disability sports; the Disability Sports Coach.

The SportHeals team are all volunteers. All money raised goes directly to their selected charity and all of SportHeals costs
are paid for by their team members
