Incredible backstories, top-level performances and outstanding medal successes....have you been inspired by Great Britain's most talented sports stars at the Tokyo 2020 Olympic and Paralympic Games? Each and every athlete has been on their own unique journey towards representing their country on the biggest stage of all....but a common thread is the commitment, dedication and sacrifice shown by them, and their families, to achieve their ambitions. We are proud to say over 400 members of SportsAid's alumni competing across the Olympics and Paralympics in Tokyo received financial support, recognition and personal development opportunities from the charity at a critical early point in their careers! So what about the next generation?

Well....they need your help to get there! We would love you to join us as we strive to raise £45,000 through the #MyMiles Challenge during SportsAid Week this September! We are encouraging our supporters to undertake their own physical activity, either individually or collectively, linked to the numbers 45, 450, 4,500 or 45,000. For example, you could do 45 lengths of your local swimming pool, spend 450 minutes practicing yoga, team up with work colleagues to cover a total of 4,500 miles cycling together, or do 45,000 steps over the week....and seek donations for your efforts!

We are aiming for our supporters to cover a collective total of 45,000 miles during SportsAid Week....your contribution will make a big difference towards reaching that goal!

We will leave the fun and creative ideas down to you, but if you do choose to be particularly ambitious, feel free to extend the period to accommodate this....you may even decide to set up an activity which takes place over 45 consecutive days to help mark our special anniversary year! The funds raised for SportsAid through the #MyMiles Challenge will make a real difference to the country's brightest sporting prospects as they look to leave behind the difficult conditions created by the COVID-19 pandemic and plot their paths towards future successes.

Many currently supported SportsAid athletes will be targeting the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games - but the majority will see competing at future Olympics and Paralympics in Paris, Milano Cortina, Los Angeles - and beyond - as realistic aims. The biggest barrier preventing them from achieving their goals is money to pay for equipment, accommodation, transport and more. Why not join the #MyMiles Challenge and help the next generation towards fulfilling their huge potential?
