Junior Champ: Attitude Award Winner Nic Brockelbank

From One In Five, 7:06 pm on 13 December 2015

Nic Brockelbank has just won the Junior section of the annual Attitude Awards; awards that recognise the achievements of people living with disabilities.

The 13-year-old lives in Cambridge, has muscular dystrophy and has written and published cookbooks to raise thousands of dollars for charity.

Nic recently took up road cycling.

At first he could barely cycle one kilometre - now he is cycling 30 kms and has built up the strength in his legs so he no longer needs to use a wheelchair.
