Another #NetworkAlbion event, another packed room at the Amex, as over 130 businesses from Sussex and afar joined us in the Heineken Lounge to enjoy a morning or networking and heard an incredibly inspiring talk from Great Britain Wheelchair Rugby athlete and Paralympian, Aaron Phipps. 

Aaron spoke about how at the age of 15, due to blood poisoning from meningitis, he had both of his legs amputated below the knee and most of his fingers too. However, not letting his disability limit him, he shared his story of how he:
 
♿ Took up competing in wheelchair racing, which led to him racing in the London Marathon with the world’s best.
🏉 Being spotted by Team GB Wheelchair Rugby, and how he balanced training for that with a full time job, to competing at the London 2012 Paralympics.
⛰ Becoming the first British man to reach the summit of Kilimanjaro unassisted in a wheelchair.


We thank Aaron for his time to join us and for sharing his story. If you would like to find out more about Aaron and to get in contact with him, you can do so HERE.
