Darren Harris is a two-time Paralympian who competed for Great Britain in judo at Beijing 2008 and football at London 2012. Ever since being diagnosed with cancer in both eyes aged 15 months, he has continued to beat the odds, becoming the most decorated blind footballer in British history. He now runs his own business helping others succeed by adding that missing ingredient called confidence.

Giving Back

Since 2010, Darren has worked on and given back to almost every project the Trust delivers including On Track to Achieve, Get on Track and the National Citizens Service, to name just a few. As an athlete mentor, he draws on the unique insight his 20 years' experience in elite sport has given him, as well as the team of top performing athletes he has engaged with and learned from in the Trust.
