I want to provide an opportunity to all of the kids in Stoke on Trent to have regular easy access to sports to help change the future that they're destined for.
On Sunday mornings at 0845 we've started a free 2K run thats free for everybody aged 4-14. All are welcome along to goals football centre in Milton.
On the weekend of May bank holiday I will be running 160 miles to try to raise money to help buy neccessary equipment such as bibs, cones, bats & balls etc
It's going to hurt like hell, please make it worth it for me!!
I've also got several other projects in mind which will be introduced over time, but we will need some funds to start with.
Imagine, if in 30 years, Stoke-on-Trent has the lowest rates of obesity , type II diabetes, heart disease and other life limiting conditions brought about by inactivity.
And that's just the start; regular sporting activity will lead to a healthy body.. A healthy body leads to a healthy mind and mind-set. By making a few small steps now, we can help to facilitate a greater sense of self worth and desire to achieve for all of the kids that participate.
Why should Stoke-on-Trent be looked down on? We can turn it around now and help to make the Stoke-on-Trent of the future the place to be, and the people from here in demand.
We can all help achieve that for our kids; the future of our city.
It starts here, with small steps.
All of us, as a city and a community can make a difference.
