Despite the challenges the sports (and entire) world has faced so far this year, Sports Aid Week is going ahead this week between the 21st and 27th September. So it’s time to get running, dancing, swimming, skiing, rowing, fencing, cycling, boxing… just about anything that gets you moving!
You set the miles (minimum 1), post your #MyMiles challenge on social media and nominate others to join in. Twenty minutes of any form of exercise equals one mile. And don’t forget to donate! This video explains more about how it works:
Your #MyMiles activities support young, talented athletes aged between 12-18 who cover around 40 miles a week in training alongside busy schedules of school, university, homework, family time and social lives.
This year, with restrictions on the use of indoor sports facilities, it’s time to get creative about how you take part and raise money for Sports Aid. You could choose to complete the challenge by walking your dog or neighbour’s dog, cycling to work instead of using public transport, or even just going for a stroll.
The charity provides vital financial support to this country’s most exceptionally talented athletes. On average, young athletes and their families spend £7,000 each year to meet the costs of their sport.
Without Sports Aid’s support, many would face the tough decision to either give up, or carry the huge financial burden of continuing their sport. 59% of SportsAid athletes revealed they would not have been able to train and compete as much without the charity’s support.
In the past, Sports Aid has helped bring us some of our finest sporting talent, including:
- Dame Jessica Ennis-Hill
- Sharron Davies
- Duncan Goodhew
- David Wilkie
- Sir Mo Farah
- Baroness Grey-Thompson
- Dame Sarah Storey
- Sir Steve Redgrave
- Dame Katherine Grainger
- Daley Thompson CBE
And since 1976 has distributed over £50 million in awards.
So if you are taking part to raise funds for this exceptional charity, don’t do it alone. Tag your friends on social media and get them involved too!
And while you puff, pant and stretch your way through the fundraising activities, Amma Life CBD products are here to support you in reaching and exceeding the miles you have challenged yourself to. CBD can help increase muscle recovery times and reduce after-training muscle soreness, meaning you can rack up the miles quicker and easier, so check out our exclusive CBD For Sports range here.
Try rubbing Amma Life CBD muscle balm into sore muscles after training. The 100% natural ingredients have been specially chosen to relieve the pain of sore muscles after strenuous activity.
And there’s no need to worry about the legalities of using CBD for sports competitions, since it was removed from the WADA list of prohibited substances last year. You can even take advantage of CBD with 0% THC content, with Amma Life’s new 5% broad spectrum CBD oil.
For around-the-clock support, try Amma Life’s new CBD patches. With 30 patches in each pack, you can support post workout muscle recovery while you sleep!
Inter-Continental super welterweight kickboxing champion, Johnny ‘Swift’ Smith, swears by Amma Life CBD products to support his training, “I find CBD helps a lot with sports recovery, often helping revive my body after a tough training session. It’s also great to relax in the evening ready for the next day.”
