John Preston Healthcare has been a family company since 1846. This year we celebrate our 170th birthday and to mark this special event we have launched the #JP170 Challenge to cover 170 miles on the leading wheelchair treadmill, Invictus Active Trainer.

We will be fundraising for Disability Sport NI an excellent charity who do amazing work with children, young people and adults with disabilities that are keen to take part in recreational and performance sport.

You can donate on our justgiving page here! We are aiming to raise £1700 for Disability Sport NI please donate what you can to support this great charity and help us reach our 170 mile goal.

#JP170 challenge will run throughout October and November and we want you to participate to help us achieve the 170 mile goal. Everyone is welcome, bring your friends and family, wheelchair and non-wheelchair users, and help us hit the 170 mile mark!
