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.

Canterbury Athletics Academy Facebook page

The Canterbury Academy has over one hundred advanced athletes in the Elite Sports Academies within the Sixth Form. The academies are a vibrant environment where students can study and develop alongside athletes from a wide range of sports. We are also a base for The Kent Track Team who include two Olympic athletes.

We have been developing a strength and conditioning room where we are able to coach our athletes in an excellent environment for developing sound technique and good habits. It is simple and safe and very effective.

Strong and safe durable equipment comes at a high cost and the school have already put in a substantial amount of funding but now our academies are expanding with young talented athletes and we are in need of more equipment.

We are hoping to purchase more weightlifting bars and some extra weight lifting plates.

On the 18th June, our athletics academy are doing a sponsored marathon relay and they are hoping to beat Mo Farah’s recently set British record of 2.06.32.

We have over ten students participating plus a guest 400m appearance from Olympians Jack Green and Gloria Hooper.

Please support us and our athletes with our fundraising event. Every little helps and hopefully with your help we can achieve our goal a little faster.

Every donation is greatly appreciated.

Thank you
