Team GB Paralympian Aaron Phipps will be a guest speaker at Saints Learning's High Performance Individuals one-day programme on Thursday 25 April.

At the age of 15, Aaron contracted meningitis C which resulted in him having both of his legs and most of his fingers amputated.

 

Undeterred, Aaron has since embarked on successful careers in both wheelchair racing and wheelchair rugby, competing in two London Marathons and representing Team GB at the 2012 London Paralympic Games.

 

On top of these achievements, Aaron has also raised over £250,000 for the Meningitis Research Foundation and, in 2016, became the first disabled British person to climb Mount Kilimanjaro without assistance.

 

To learn first-hand what determination and grit really means, you can see Aaron speak at Saints Learning's High Performance Individual's programme.
