Ade Adepitan MBE is one of the best known faces of British sport. Ade contracted polio when he was six months old, and was later inspired to take up wheelchair basketball after seeing the British team in action. He went on to win more than 90 caps with the British team, and competed at the 2000 and 2004 Paralympics, winning Bronze in Athens. He was a high profile ambassador for London's bid for the 2012 Games, and was heavily involved with the coverage of the Paralympics, winning a BAFTA for That Paralympic Show. Ade has spoken at number corporate events on behalf of Right To Play, including Goldman Sachs, RK&O and BDO LLP. Ade has donated his speaker fees to raise money for Right To Play.

“I am delighted that the UN has designated April 6th International Day of Sport for Development and Peace and am proud to celebrate this day with Right To Play whose programmes change so many lives around the world through sport and play.”
