You can meet talented young athletes, hear the incredible stories of our alumni, listen to guest speakers, network with like-minded business people and see the tangible results of your support….all at our local Lunch Clubs. Why not attend an event and help raise funds for the charity?
SportsAid fundraiser Susannah Gill won the women's title at the World Marathon Challenge after completing seven marathons across seven continents in seven days. Susannah, who was one of only two British competitors in the field, completed the 183 miles (295km) in a time of 22 hours, 50 minutes and 42 seconds – setting a new world record in the process. The challenge saw her travel 55,000 miles as she overcame courses in Antarctica, Cape Town, Perth, Dubai, Madrid, Santiago and Miami.
Susannah started and finished the challenge by donning her SportsAid running vest in Antarctica, where temperatures dropped as low as -35C, and Miami. She was burning up to 5,000 calories a day and won six of the seven legs to secure her place on top of the podium. Susannah’s passion for running was fuelled by completing the London Marathon in 2009 and she has since notched up over 45 marathons and a handful of ultras, including 100km, 100 mile and 24-hour races.
