SportsAid helps the next generation of British sports stars by giving them financial support and recognition during the critical early stages of their careers.
SportsAid athlete Theo Etienne is gearing up for the European Athletics Indoor Championships in Serbia later this week having won his first senior medal less than a month ago. The 20-year-old claimed silver in the 60 metres at the British Athletics Indoor Championships as he finished with an impressive time of 6.57 seconds. It was an astonishing feat for Theo having not expected to qualify for Belgrade.
Sporting icon Eddie ‘the Eagle’ Edwards flew in to Ipswich on Friday (24 February) to help raise funds for Suffolk’s up-and-coming sportsmen and women. Edwards, who became the first competitor since 1929 to represent Great Britain in Olympic ski jumping, was guest of honour at the Ipswich Sporting Lunch Club. The Ipswich Sporting Lunch Club was set up in 2015 to raise money for SportsAid to support young athletes in Suffolk.
Team SportsAid’s London Marathon runners came together for a pre-race reception yesterday (23 February) to gain inspiration and advice as they build up towards taking on the world’s most iconic marathon. The charity has a team of 43 runners raising funds to help support the next generation of British athletes with their training and competition costs. Last year's team collectively generated over £86,000.
SportsAid's support meant so much to me and I’ll always be very grateful for what they’ve done.
