“ARE YOU THE FUTURE OF BRITISH SPORT? Check out www.BringOnTomorrowFoundation.com”
For Goodness Shakes have just launched a sporting legacy initiative called the Bring on Tomorrow Foundation in partnership with SportsAid. The Foundation is supporting tomorrows athletes, today by providing funding and an athlete development programme to 7 talented young athletes who have been selected through SportsAid.
They currently have 3 ‘Elite Mentors’ on board with the Foundation who run training days for the young athletes and will provide advice and guidance throughout the year. These mentors are Liam Tancock, 50m Backstroke world record holder and world champion, Sarah Stevenson who very recently won Gold at the Taekwondo World Championships and Andy Turner, European and Commonwealth 110m Hurdles Champion. These 3 have been chosen as they are competing at the very highest level in their respective sports and are keen to impart their knowledge and experience to the younger athletes.
But they still have one place left in the foundation which will be won through ‘The Final Place’ competition. Any athlete aged 16-23 may enter the competition by visiting the website and submitting an entry explaining why they should win. They must then recruit as many votes as possible to make it through to the last 10. From the 10 highest voted entries, a judging panel, including the 3 mentors will choose the lucky athlete to fill the final place. The prize includes £1000 funding, training and development days with the Elite mentors, a year’s supply of For Goodness Shakes, Foundation training kit and athlete profile page on the Foundation website.
