Hero Daisy from is set for superhero challenge

A quadriplegic six-year old with cerebral is taking part in a superhero triathlon this weekend with support from her family.

Daisy Mason from East Winch, near King’s Lynn, was born nearly 12 weeks early.

She was diagnosed with cerebral palsy which means she needs a wheelchair because she has difficulty controlling her muscles or walking unaided.

Despite this, she will take part in the triathlon with support from her dad Adam as they swim, bike and run at Dorney Lake in Windsor.

The Superhero Series is a disability sports series for everyday superheroes with no time or equipment restrictions.

Participants can either do it themselves or team up with disabled and able-bodied family and friends.

Daisy is taking part alongside the other teams from her solicitors Irwin Mitchell Cambridge who sponsor the event and are running the Don’t Quit, Do It campaign to raise awareness of disabled sports. Paralympian Dan Greaves is part of the Irwin Mitchell team with some of the law firm’s clients and staff also taking part.
