My story

[p][b]Wendy and Sylvia's Birthday Marathon Challenge[/b][/p][p]We are celebrating a special birthday on the same day a year apart, and wanted to do something that we both love for a cause that is very close to our hearts. Having grown up in the wonderful sport of athletics and reached a level that we are both proud of, we recognise how much support is needed, especially as a young person with loads of talent and ambition. [/p][p]The Ron Pickering Memorial Fund helps support the next generation of aspiring international athletes - in terms of small but significant grants, impacting an athletes ability to develop and help overcome barriers to their future success. [/p][p]Since its inception in 1992, the Fund has granted several thousand small but individually significant awards totalling some £2.0 million. These help provides support for equipment, specialist coaching or travel, and importantly help build the athletes’ confidence and self esteem through recognition.[/p][p]The success of the awards has been considerable with many of today’s leading athletes being helped along the way by the RPMF. The majority of the 2008, 2012 and 2016 British Olympic athletics teams were supported at some stage by the Fund, including all individual medallists in 2012 and 2016.[/p]
