I have been chosen by my university to travel to and work in Zambia for 16 days. Myself and 9 other fellow students will be working alongside the charity "sport in action" within different schools, hospitals and communities around Lusaka and Livingstone. We will be promoting sexual health and healthy relationships to children and young people through teachings, and using sport as a tool for social change. This trip is self funded and I am required to raise funds to buy essential resources to take for the children and young people in these deprived areas. These resources include: sports equipment, exercise/work books, pens/paper/pencils, clothing and footwear, mosquito nets, sexual health promotion resources and much more!
My first fund raising event is a 10K run around Stanley Park, Blackpool. Saturday 27th February!
