The #MyMiles Challenge will be brought to life during SportsAid Week as 18 young talented athletes use their Instagram accounts to provide an insight into their training schedules and the commitment, dedication and sacrifice they show in order to pursue their sporting ambitions. Each of the athletes, who are all current SportsAid beneficiaries ranging from 13 to 25 years old, will dedicate their Instagram Story to the charity.
Great Britain and England hockey star Emily Defroand recently spent a week on work experience with SportsAid to gain an insight into the charity’s work and its day-to-day operations. Earlier this year, the 24-year-old won bronze at the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games with Team England. She is a full-time athlete who actively wants to increase her knowledge of potential career paths for the future.
