Due to lockdown, it is increasingly more difficult for young people to be active, in fact Sport England have reported that "38% of children are doing less exercise in lockdown". At SportInspired we are working hard to engage with young people and offer creative solutions to help them be active at home - and most importantly to have fun doing so!

I've been fortunate enough to see SportInspired's impact first hand, from disengaged teens growing into fantastic leaders in their communities to a primary school child connecting with a new sport and building their self-confidence. This is why I have decided to challenge myself to run from London to Melbourne (in lengths of my street!). Although a flight would be much quicker, 10,507 lengths of my street sounded a little more challenging (and cheaper!) and with your help I'm hoping to raise £500 for this incredible charity.
