Welcome

Thank you for visiting the 50 list website. In 2012 I embarked on a year of 50 challenges. From building a 1000 piece jigsaw, learning to make a creme brûlée and completing a half marathon to some more extreme challenges; scuba divingjet skiingsnow skiingindoor skydive and accelerating from 0 to 160 mph in eight seconds in a dragster!

Why did I do this? I have a disability which confines me to a wheelchair. My daughter has the same condition and I wanted to show her that anything, if you put your mind to it, is possible.

I managed to complete 47 out of the 50 and I have every intention of completing the last three someday. I hope you enjoy your visit to this site.
