Mr Motivator backs new fitness campaign

Research highlights that over half of the blind and partially sighted population in the UK are inactive and do less than 30 minutes of physical activity a week.

To address this statistic, RNIB (Royal National Institute of Blind People) and British Blind Sport have combined to launch the See Sport Differently participation campaign, to tackle the disparity of inactivity amongst blind and partially sighted people.

With more than half (53%) of blind and partially sighted people highlighting that they do not feel they have the opportunity to play sport, the campaign shares the real stories of blind and partially sighted individuals who have overcome the many hurdles that often prevent them from getting involved in sport and physical activity.

To support the motivational and compelling stories, RNIB and British Blind Sport have created an accessible online hub to provide information and guidance on accessible sports and activities for blind and partially sighted people across the country.

Aston spoke to Mr Motivator and Gareth Davies, RNIB’s strategic engagement manager.
