SportsAid is the charity for sports people, helping the next generation of British sporting talent to succeed. For over 30 years, SportsAid has financially supported talented, young sports people when they need it the most, at the start of their journey to international success. SportsAid is the first organisation to recognise their talent, often when Mum and Dad are their only sponsors. Young athletes, both able-bodied and those with a disability, are nominated to SportsAid by their sport’s own national governing body (NGB). This ensures the right athlete is helped at the right time, and in the right way. It is a proven and established process that makes a genuine difference. Many of Britain’s most successful athletes have been helped on their journey by SportsAid: Redgrave, Radcliffe, Grey-Thompson, Holmes, Hoy, Adlington, Wiggins, Ohuruogu, and many more. By raising money in the name of sport for the benefit of sport, we ensure the next generation has the backing they need to reach the same heights.

So last year I finally took the plunge stepping it up from 400 metres to the 26.2 miles! You would think I would learn by my mistakes but I am set to battle my way around the Capital once again to raise money for SportsAid

SportsAid is the charity for sports people, helping the next generation of British sporting talent to succeed.

It's an amazing organisation which has recognised and supported young athletes all over the country and has enjoyed doing so since 1976. They are the only major organisation helping talented young people at an age when no-one else does, stepping in with financial backing to help these rising stars advance to the next level in their sporting career. SportsAid not only provides financial support but it also provides recognition, acknowledging that these young athletes have a special ability and with support and encouragement, they could go on to achieve their full potential.

I am a Sports Aid alumni, as were 18 of the 19 Gold medallists from Beijing. This support early on in a sporting career really makes a difference please lend your support.

Donating through Virgin Money Giving is quick, easy and totally secure. It’s also the most efficient way to sponsor me: Sportsaid gets your money faster and, if you’re a UK taxpayer, Justgiving makes sure 25% in Gift Aid, plus a 3% supplement, are added to your donation.

Thanks so much for your support,
