    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


    ACADEMY 300: Linking inspiration with aspiration.

    Created in 2012, the GB Athletes involved in the Legacy 300 project have as of 21/11/16 raised £351,760 for good causes who have generated these funds by selling places on a wide range of Athlete Experience Days.

    Previous events and the history of the project can be found by visiting or .

    Whilst continuing this fundraising, all involved in Legacy 300 are now looking to use these popular Experience Days to support young people, and have launched Academy 300.

    Academy 300 has been established to link inspirational GB Olympic medalists with aspirational young people with the purpose of engaging communities to support the funding challenges faced by young people starting out in their chosen careers whether, sport, arts, creative industry or general careers.


    Buy places on popular experience days such as cycling days with GB gold medallists, GB rowing days, rafting with GB slalom canoeists or beach volleyball with the GB beach volleyball women. For previous days visit
