Change the lives of young people this Christmas with the Personal Best Foundation

Traditionally at this time of year, the focus turns to those less fortunate and in most need of support. The Personal Best Foundation, England Athletics’ newly launched charity, is all about providing opportunities and hope for disadvantaged children and young people through the power of athletics.

We caught up with some inspirational athletes and para-athletes who joined us to celebrate the launch of the Foundation as they explained what athletics means to them and how important it is that youngsters can get access to the sport regardless of ability, aspiration or background.

Together, we can change young lives through athletics.

£20 could pay for a young person facing financial hardship to complete a Leading Athletics Workshop and take their first steps into volunteering, helping them to build confidence and establish friendships.
