Veteran Grant Harvey (Aldershot, Hampshire)

Sport: Skiing

Grant Harvey was diagnosed with an auto immune disease of the brain and spine called Demyelisation. He also suffers from Arthritis in both feet & right wrist. Since then, Grant has received a confirmed diagnosis of Relapse Remitting Multiple Sclerosis which has left Grant with severe mobility issues.

That hasn’t stopped him though, and through support and guidance from Help for Heroes, Grant has discovered the restorative and freeing nature of adaptive sports, significantly, adaptive skiing, which he shows immense talent and potential in. In 2013, Grant was part of the Help for Heroes team that competed at the US Warrior Games. Since then, Grant has gained Paralympic Classification (LW1) in ski racing at IPCAS level.
