Story

**UPDATE**

Tommy successfully beat the current record on 11.06.24 (pending official approval from GWR!)

** **

It has been 15 years since my younger Brother Jamie passed away suddenly from an undedected heart condition.

And it has been 15 years since we set up the Jamie G Sporting Trust in his name.

It has also been a whopping 8 years since I last put myself in a pressure position to actively raise funds (mainly due to raising children and having no time/energy!) but they are a little older now and it's time to get stuck in.

After the amazing evening that we had together at the 2023 Jamie G Sporting Trust Gala Ball, I was inspired to get to work the very next day on a 2 year plan to challenge myself and raise money.

I saw this Guinness World Record and it was the ideal start place for me to get the ball rolling.

It took 7 months for the application to come through as accepted, and the criteria soon proved to be more of a challenge than I first thought!

But that's the whole point, right?

So here we are. I have been practicing and I know that if everything comes together on the day, I will achieve this. But I am counting on your support.

Not just for me kicking these balls, but as a charity. We still have a lot of work to do to help young people take part in and be inspired by sport.

Your donation helps to make that happen.

Jamie would not want us (especially me!) to slack off. We live with purpose and we make a difference. Together.

Thank you.

Tommy G

Jamie's Brother.

PLEASE NOTE: Your donation will go to The Jamie G Sporting Trust no matter what (dare I say...even if I am unsuccessful!) BUT I will not stop until I get it!

THE CRITERIA:

The record currently stands at 12.

I have a support team helping me and an official criteria set by GWR.

There are 3 positions that I have to alternate my kicks from.

Plenty of sprinting in between (hard work!)

I am allowed to have as many attempts as I like.

If...I mean WHEN I get 13 or more, it's done!

About the charity
