At 20 years old Oli Hemsley was walking through London to a friend’s house when he became the victim of a senseless and unprovoked knife attack. Oliver suffered multiple stab wounds by a gang in the Shoreditch area of London. Whilst Oliver miraculously survived, he was left with a life changing injuries, having been paralysed from the neck down, wheelchair bound. Ride2Recovery was started originally as both a way to support Oli and selected spinal injury charities and also to find a positive focus after the event. Almost a decade on with the support of friends, family and charities Oli has bravely fought back.
