Allied Mobility, the UK’s leading supplier of wheelchair accessible vehicles (WAVs), is thrilled to announce its support for Geraint Williams, an inspirational Welsh athlete with the rare nerve condition Friedreich’s Ataxia.  

Geraint has previously conquered the London Marathon, Tough Mudder, and even the summit of Mount Kilimanjaro in an adapted wheelchair. He has been awarded £1,000 by Allied Mobility’s charitable arm, the Allied Vehicles Charitable Trust, to support a series of challenges in 2024 including 12 half-marathons and the full Berlin Marathon. 

Ben Jenkins, National Sales Manager at Allied Mobility, expressed his admiration for Geraint’s, stating, “Geraint Williams embodies the spirit of overcoming adversity. His accomplishments are a testament to what can be achieved with determination and the right support. Allied Mobility is proud to support his journey, and we are excited to see the results he will achieve.” 

With a history of generating national attention for his endeavours, Geraint’s upcoming challenges are expected to further highlight the capabilities of people living with disabilities and the crucial role of support and mobility solutions in enabling their achievements. 

Mr. Williams expressed his gratitude towards Allied Mobility for their donation, which will assist with travel and accommodation costs as he continues to push the boundaries of what is possible for athletes with disabilities.  

“I will be completing the 12 half-marathon events and full Berlin Marathon in my adapted wheelchair, and I will be travelling in my Ford Dream WAV,” he said, “This generous funding from Allied Mobility has really taken the pressure off in terms of the cost of travel and accommodation.”
