A combined team of Up & Under Sports staff and colleagues from the primary schools in which we work are coming together to run the Keynsham 10k on Sunday 6th October. We are doing this to raise funding for Empire Fighting Chance, a charity which supports and inspires vulnerable people across Bristol through the medium of boxing. As an organisation which shares many of the values which Empire Fighting Chance promotes and develops within the people they work with, we are delighted to be able to work in partnership with this fantastic charity.

Our work changes lives, improving young people’s education, mental health and career prospects.
