We are so pleased to announce that Hannah Cockroft MBE has agreed to be our Ambassador for The 53 Foundation.
To have someone like Hannah, who is such an inspiration to so many people, believe in our charity and share our vision for the future is amazing and an absolute honour for us.
Amy first met Hannah in 2014 when they were both part of a campaign for the lingerie company Panache, aptly named ‘inspirational role models’. Amy was blown away by Hannah, not only by her personal sporting achievements, but by her personality, drive and her never give up attitude, which has created the legacy she has today.
I obviously can’t write this post without picking out a few highlights of Hannah’s career to date:
London 2012 Paralympic gold medal winner in T34 100m & 200 m
World champion 2011 & 2013 in T34 100m & 200m
European champion 2014 T34 100m & 800 m
World record holder 100m (17.31), 200m (30.51), 400m (59.42) & 800m (2:04.49)
Awarded an MBE for services to Athletics 2013
And without doubt adding to this medal tally in Doha this month (October) at the IPC World Championships.
I think the only way to end this piece is with Hannah’s ambition, which is.. Very simply … TO BE UNBEATABLE
