SportsAid Week 2023
SportsAid Week 2023 is taking place from Monday 6 March to Sunday 12 March! This year’s theme focuses on accessibility and inclusion as the charity shines a spotlight on the country’s most talented young athletes and celebrates the incredible work being undertaken by its partners to support the future of British sport!
Accessibility and Inclusion
SportsAid has always been firm in its belief that any athlete demonstrating the characteristics and ability required to succeed should have the opportunity to develop and fulfil their potential. The charity is actively working to increase diversity across the talent pathway - particularly through its programmes with Sport England.
The #MyMiles Challenge
The #MyMiles Challenge is once again at the heart of the SportsAid Week activity! The Challenge is inspired by SportsAid athletes who cover around 40 miles in training every week. The Challenge encourages supporters to ‘keep them company’ by undertaking physical activity of their own to show we are right behind them.
SportsAid Week is an opportunity for partners to highlight their own work in the areas of accessibility and inclusion. The charity’s supporters will be able to connect to theme through in-person events or other means. It will also open up discussions on the progress being made, as well as the challenges faced, in the sports sector.
SportsAid athletes revealed in the charity’s most recent survey that accessibility and the cost of sport are the issues they care most passionately about. SportsAid wants to tell the stories of the country’s most exciting young sports stars while also giving them a voice and finding out more about the ‘person behind the athlete’.
