Sophie C-K, Year 5, has worked tirelessly on fundraising for the charity Restless Development, and we are very proud of her achievements. She is planning to embark, along with her team of friends at school, Hannah, Isabelle, Eleanor and Sophie, upon another triathlon this year, and their training will start shortly!
Here is an excerpt from the blog that Restless Development has put up on its website.
Since 2016, over 6,000 young people have taken part in the Flight Centre Schools Triathlon – an event that challenges children aged 7-12 to swim, cycle and run to raise money for charity. To date, the series has raised over £700,000 for Restless Development and over 40 school charities.
Meet Sophie, one of Restless Development’s youngest fundraisers:
Sophie was 7 years old when she decided to take on her first triathlon to “help young people advocating for change in their communities and get fit.” She trained hard in preparation for the day, and had a blast at the event. Sophie’s favourite moment was “running across the finish line with my team, with our hands in the air.” Sophie worked even harder to fundraise for the event raising an incredible £2,700 in her first year! Sophie now has two triathlons under her belt and has raised nearly £6,000 for Restless Development and various charities that her school has chosen to support during term.
