Story

I am raising money for two Charities, The Youth Sport Trust & World Vision. The Youth Sport Trust use's sport to change young people's lives. Such as the 'Girls Active' initiative which looks to tackle the negative image young girls have about their bodies. Where as World Vision is the worlds largest global childrens charity which aims to tackle violence & abuse towards young children as well as disaster relief amongst their many other activities.

Sport has been essential part of my life for the past 20+ years it has helped and still helps me battle depression and low confidence in myself, something the Youth Sport Trust address in their work. Among the many sports I participate in one of them is surfing and having watched the movie 'Soul Surfer' I was inspired to raise money for World Vision, a charity the main character goes on mission with during the film; the film is a true story of a girl who overcomes great adversity in her own life to help others.
