Can you help us Champion an Olympic Champion?
We’d like to say Good Luck to our wonderful Patron and Olympic Medal winner Robin Cousins who is heading out to Korea on Feb 5th to commentate on the Ice Skating at the Winter Olympics. Talking of Olympics we thought we would share with you some sports news from our Champions.
The Starr Trust helps young people of Sussex be the best they can be, but some of our Champions are really aiming high and already on the road to bringing back Olympic Medals. With your help we can inspire many more young people so why not sign up to one of our brilliant sports events like the 4-day Bike Ride this July and really make a difference.
3 of our young Champions
Hannah took up kayaking after years of being bullied at school. We supported Hannah and her family and she has gone from strength to strength. Hannah has competed both nationally and internationally in Kayak and also competed with Team GB at the Rafting World Championships in Dubai, winning 2 Gold, 1 Silver and 2 Bronze medals.
Shaina loves kickboxing and age 14 qualified to enter the Unified World Championships being held in association with the WKA Association in Florida last October. We helped her to get there and were absolutely thrilled when she came home with the World Title!
Nathan is a wheelchair user and is really good at wheelchair racing but the costs became prohibitively expensive for his family to cover. We bought him a bespoke racing chair and
he has been selected to be part of this year’s Team England 2018 CPISRA World Games in Spain! He’s now following his dream of becoming a Paralympic champion.
