SportsAid helps the next generation of British sports stars by giving them financial support and recognition during the critical early stages of their careers.
England Boxing’s Ellie Scotney is taking everything ‘step-by-step’ as she looks to fulfil her long-term ambition of representing Team GB. The 19-year-old competes in the women’s featherweight division (57kg) and was crowned senior elite national champion at the 130th England Boxing Elite National Championships after what she described as ‘three very tough fights’ in Rotherham last weekend.
The Realbuzz Group, an industry leading provider of digital solutions in the events, fitness and charity sectors, is a key supporter of Britain’s leading young disabled athletes through SportsAid. The Realbuzz Foundation, which acts as the fundraising arm of the company, was founded by the Realbuzz Group chairman Tim Rogers after he was inspired by the relentless dedication and passion young athletes show for their sport.
Team SportsAid’s 2017 London Marathon runners soaked up the adulation of the crowd as they crossed the finish line on The Mall, the race’s famous home stretch, on Sunday (23 April) afternoon – bringing to an end months of training, meticulous preparations and sacrifices! The 36 runners have so far managed to raise over £74,000 to help support the next generation of British sports stars.
SportsAid's support meant so much to me and I’ll always be very grateful for what they’ve done.
