Five members of The Data City are joining the CIMSPA team to walk the equivilant of the national 3 peaks, whilst carrying 20 kilos of weight.
We are doing this to raise money and awareness that children in the UK are in crisis. Whilst this issue is nothing new, the pandemic, the cost of living crisis and the war in Ukraine have driven the terrible inequalities existing around sport and activities for young people to devastating levels that will impact many generations to come.
- Almost a quarter (23.4%) of children are obese
- Over half of all children (53%) do not achieve the recommended daily activity levels
- Young people from low affluence families are less likely to be active compared to those from medium and high affluence families
Youth Sport Trust equips educators and empowers young people with the vision of creating a future where every child enjoys the life-changing benefits of play and sport. Sport gives young people a platform to have their voice heard and a place to feel they belong. We harness this extraordinary power to change young lives today and help them build a brighter tomorrow. The vital work we do to help address this crisis would simply not be possible without our generous changemakers.
Together we’re transforming lives through sport and play #TeamYST
