Sophie's fundraiser for Youth Sport Trust
Fundraising for Youth Sport Trust
Verified by JustGiving
As a Personal Trainer I see the profound impact physical activity has on people's overall quality of life. It concerns me that kids are on the whole less active than they used to be and missing out on the huge benefits of taking part in sport. This is not just physical health but self confidence, resilience, social skills, and a sense of belonging.
I am so grateful that I enjoyed sport as a kid as it has got me through some of the hardest times as a young adult and continues to be my main outlet to keep my mental health in check.
Life isn't meant to be easy, but what we can do is equip the next generation to feel their own strength and have an outlet for their emotions so that they can handle life's challenges.
I love running, but 100 miles is a very long way. It is going to hurt. I hope that running for a great cause with the support of friends and family will get me through some incredibly tough hours.
Thank you for your donation, no matter how big or small, it all counts!
Youth Sport Trust equips educators and empowers young people with the vision of creating a future where every child enjoys the life-changing benefits of play and sport. Sport gives young people a platform to have their voice heard and a place to feel they belong. We harness this extraordinary power to change young lives today and help them build a brighter tomorrow. The vital work we do to help address this crisis would simply not be possible without our generous changemakers.
