SportsAid helps the next generation of British sports stars by giving them financial support and recognition during the critical early stages of their careers.
The sky is well and truly the limit for taekwondo star Leah Moorby, something she is determined to prove further as she chases her fourth successive British title this weekend. The 17-year-old black belt travels to London where she will not only be going for yet another junior title, but will also compete in the senior competition too.
SportsAid is encouraging the British public to support the country’s sporting future by undertaking fundraising activities to help the next generation of Olympians and Paralympians targeting Tokyo 2020 and beyond. The charity’s inaugural SportsAid Week takes place from Monday 26 September to Sunday 2 October.
SportsAid athletes won 44 gold, 28 silver and 32 bronze medals in Rio as ParalympicsGB had its most successful Games since Seoul 1988. The 104 podium finishes claimed by former beneficiaries of the charity came across 14 different sports. Swimming was the best performing individual sport for SportsAid alumni with 47 medals.
SportsAid's support meant so much to me and I’ll always be very grateful for what they’ve done.
