Jack Petchey Foundation
If you think you can, you can!


The Panathlon Challenge seeks to inspire young disabled people to use competitive sport and fair play as a means of social and personal development.

The Jack Petchey Foundation has invested over £800,000 to Panathlon’s activities across London and Essex since 2004. Over 250 schools are involved in London and Essex with tens of thousands of hours of activity being generated. This culminates in area finals being held at the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in London and a range of venues in Essex.

Panathlon also hold a Outstanding Achiever Awards ceremony every year for the most inspiring young people in London and Essex.

In addition to the 3,000 young disabled people due to be involved in London and Essex in 2018, a further 600+ young leaders will be trained and deployed in various activities throughout the year, giving them fantastic practical life experiences.

Independent research has proven the huge impact Panathlon has had and continues to have on young people's lives.
