Nikki Bradley

 

Nikki Bradley is an adaptive adventurer and one of Ireland’s leading female motivational speakers. She also worked in sport (Triathlon Ireland) and is an ambassador for multiple national brands such as Sculpted by Aimee and the VHI Women’s Mini Marathon.

 

Diagnosed with Ewing’s Sarcoma at aged 16 and surviving the rare and often deadly form of bone cancer, offered Nikki a unique opportunity to restart her life at a young age. She is the founder of ‘Fighting Fit For Ewing’s’, which aims to increase awareness about the disease as well as participating in physical challenges.

 

The Donegal native attempted a Guinness World Record in Holland, tackled a route of the Solheimajokull glacier in Iceland, climbed The Sturrall in Donegal which is one of Ireland’s most outstanding sea cliffs and abseiled off it, completed the Fan Dance – a gruelling 24km trek through the snowy Brecon Beacons in Wales – all while relying on crutches. In July 2018, Nikki became the first crutch user to climb four Irish mountains on crutches in less than 32 hours and in 2019 she completed a summer half marathon and a monumental visit to Tanzania, Africa where she volunteered with suicide prevention organisation ALPS.

 

Nikki had her right leg amputated on the 7th of February 2022 making her one of the first people in Ireland to opt for Rotationplasty surgery. Her first major event as an amputee takes places on June 4th 2023 where Nikki will participate in the VHI Women’s Mini Marathon.

 

She hopes her experiences will help others facing adversity.
