Introducing the L4A Ambassadors
Julie Rogers joined Legs4Africa as an ambassador in May 2020.
Julie is a sprinter and has represented Paralympics GB twice. Originally competing in volleyball, she changed her attention to athletics in 2013. She is now one of the fastest female Paralympic sprinters in the UK – in 2014 Julie’s fastest time as a sprinter was 5th in the world rankings for that year.
And as if that isn’t impressive enough – she also just graduated her Economics Degree at Cardiff Met University with a First Class Honours.
Julie first got involved with Legs in 2019 when she donated her old prosthetics as part of the ‘Little Legs’ campaign. She was also the brains behind the ‘Legs4Africa waiting room quiz book’ idea.
“The value and freedom a prosthesis gives to an amputee is something that is definitely taken for granted. The reality of others not having the same privilege has to be changed, which is why I think Legs4Africa is such a great charity to get behind.”
