Disability Ambassador

PARALYMPIC SPRINTER BECOMES FOUNDATION AMBASSADOR

25th May 2016

The Disability Programme at Cardiff City FC Foundation has a new ambassador in the form of Paralympian sprinter, Rhys Jones.

 

Rhys has joined as an ambassador to raise the profile of the Disability Programme and to inspire the participants to fulfill their potential.

 

As Rhys’s journey started with his local PAN Disability Club, RCT Tigers, there is a chance for the participants to interact with an individual with a relatable story and background to Rhys’s and inspire them to engage, achieve and progress.

 

Rhys attended Cardiff City FC Foundation’s Learning Disability session on Friday to share his story with the participants and watch the players train.

 

Paralympic Sprinter, Rhys Jones said:

 

“It’s a huge honour and privilege to be an ambassador for Cardiff City FC Foundation and to be invited to the session Friday. Disability sport has played a pivotal role in my life and both my physical and mental health has significantly improved from the time that I started 8 years ago. I look forward to sharing my experiences with the guys and helping them reach their own personal goals and dreams. I can’t wait to continue working with this fantastic organization.”

 

Disability & Health Coordinator, Josh Law said:

 

“Rhys’s story since he joined RCT Tigers has been incredible. It shows the power that sport has to change people’s lives and help them reach their potential. It’s an honour to have Rhys on board and I hope our participants take inspiration from the opportunities they will get to meet Rhys in the coming months.”

 

Cardiff City FC Foundation would like to thank Rhys Jones for his involvement with the programme and wish him all the best with his training and competitions over the coming months.
