We exist to help young people find solutions to deal with these social issues through the power of sport.
Event date: Saturday 18th September
Join Lucy and friends on Hamish’s Walk – a dawn till dusk walking challenge across the South Downs.
For those of you who didn’t know Hamish, he was a wonderful young man; full of life, fun and a passionate sportsman. He was diagnosed with a brain tumour in 2012 and after an incredibly brave battle, he died in 2017. Hamish was drawn to The Change Foundation through his love for cricket, spending time volunteering to coach on the charity's Refugee Cricket Project.
So on Saturday 18th September we will be walking across the South Downs from dawn until dusk to tell stories about Hamish, to catch up with friends and to raise money for Lucy’s favourite charity, The Change Foundation, who use the power of sport to help at-risk and marginalised young people change their lives in London, across the UK and around the world.
