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.
It was only a matter of time before the #MyMiles Marathon was born….and it’s ready to make its debut during SportsAid Week 2018! Tim Lawler, SportsAid’s Chief Executive, Paralympic champion Danny Crates and Andrew Cohen-Wray, founder of Athlete In Mind, will be running a special 26.2 mile route through Buckinghamshire to help raise awareness of the incredible dedication and commitment shown by young British athletes.
