The Superhero Series is the UK’s only disability sports series. Their aim is to create a fun and exciting ‘anything goes’ environment where people with disabilities call the shots and don’t have to worry about cut off times or equipment restrictions. The challenge lasts 4 weeks in which participants can fly solo or unite with friends and family to complete their ‘At Home’ mission. You are free to set your own goal and can complete the challenge by any means e.g. walking, running, swimming, riding a bike, hula hoping etc. or you may choose to use one of your super senses such as bursting bubbles, sensing sounds or taste testing…the options are endless!
CL Medilaw is a corporate friend of the Superhero Series and had a number of free places. So are you ready to meet our Superheroes?!
Abaya the Blaster
Abaya is 11 years old and has atheoid cerebral palsy. This affects all 4 of her limbs and results in her having limited movement.
For this years challenge, Abaya is going to operate her power chair on her own and will try to knock a Lego tower over without anyone’s help. Go Abaya!
Abaya wanted to take part in this years challenge to show everyone that she is very good at achieving her goals.
Abaya’s Superpower is: Never Give Up
Fin the Fabulous AKA FtF
Meet Finley who is 11 years old and has cerebral palsy. Finley is a very confident and sociable young man with a very witty personality that shines through to everyone who is lucky enough to meet him.
Finley is very excited to be taking part in this year’s challenge and will be using his super power of supersonic speed to complete a total of 10 miles around a local reservoir in his electric wheelchair over the next 4 weeks. Go Finley!!
Finley will be raising money for the Royal British Legion, a charity that he is proud to raise funds for with his dad, uncle and grandad all being ex-serving soldiers.

Laura Cook, Partner at CL Medilaw added “We are extremely excited to be supporting our superheroes, Abaya, Finley and Henry, in completing their challenges over the coming weeks and seeing their amazing super powers in action. As long-term supporters of the Superheroes Series, which also includes the annual Superheroes Tri and Winter Wonderwheels, we know that there are many incredible superheroes out there who refuse to let their disabilities hold them back. The At Home Superheroes event provides an opportunity, in these strange pandemic times, to come together and show off those super skills!”
