SportsAid helps the next generation of British sports stars by giving them financial support and recognition during the critical early stages of their careers.
SportsAid and Altitude Film Entertainment have joined forces on the theatrical release of RACE, the incredible true story of gold medal champion Jesse Owens’ fight to make Olympic history, in cinemas on Friday 3 June. The partnership is designed to help raise funds for SportsAid’s Support the Next campaign, which provides financial help and recognition for Britain’s next generation of Olympic and Paralympic athletes.
SportsAid is excited to announce it has been confirmed as the official charity partner of this year’s Champions Tennis at the Royal Albert Hall. The event, taking place from 30 November to 4 December, will help SportsAid bring to a close its 40th anniversary celebrations as tennis legends John McEnroe and Pat Rafter headline the season-finale to the ATP Champions Tour.
Sharing a podium with two of your sporting heroes at a senior championships is the stuff dreams are made of when you're just 16 years old. For Rhys McClenaghan, it was the real thing. Earlier this month, he took bronze in the men's pommel horse at the British Gymnastics Championships in Liverpool - finishing behind winner Max Whitlock and runner-up Louis Smith.
SportsAid's support meant so much to me and I’ll always be very grateful for what they’ve done.
