Back Hazel’s Sport Relief challenge!
This weekend, two-time European Para Championship medallist Hazel Chaisty will be part of Goldcrest Archers’ bid to shoot 10,000 arrows in 24 hours for Comic Relief 2018.
It’s the latest move in her fundraising efforts. In January, she visited Marple Hall School in Stockport to help kickstart the school’s Sport Relief campaign by talking about motivation and her experience of being a professional athlete. The idea was to inspire the pupils to get active, fundraise and make a difference.
She said: “I’m excited to be fundraising for Sport Relief. It’s such fantastic way for the public to get up and active, all while raising money to help change lives here at home and all over the world. Goldcrest can’t wait to get going with our challenge!”
Sport Relief kicks off on 17 March and runs until the 23rd. Money raised will be spent by Comic Relief to tackle critical issues affecting vulnerable people across the UK and the world and helping them to live happier, healthier and safer lives.
