MOVE UNITED is the leading adaptive sports organisation in the US, with a mission to accelerate a movement that fully includes people with disabilities in society, and forever change the way the world views disability. Using the power of sport as a platform for confrontation and conversation, Move United is a call to action for athletes, supporters and society at large to take part and prove what we are all capable of.

THE MICHAEL J. FOX FOUNDATION is the world’s largest non-profit funder of Parkinson’s research, dedicated to accelerating a cure for Parkinson’s disease and improved therapies for those living with the condition today. Through an aggressively funded research agenda and leveraging its core values of optimism, urgency, resourcefulness, collaboration, accountability and persistence in problem-solving, the organisation works tirelessly to find scientific solutions that produce tangible improvements in patients’ lives.
BITE BACK 2030 is a youth-led movement determined to protect health and halve child obesity by 2030. 3.3 million children in the UK are overweight due to a flood of unhealthy food on our high streets, supermarket shelves and school canteens; whilst advertisers spend billions giving junk food a starring role in young people’s minds. Built on an ever-growing group of passionate youth activists, Bite Back seeks to redesign the food system, and campaign for every child’s right to good, quality food and a healthy future, no matter where they live.
