Starting Blocks Challenge


The SCL Community Team was worked with The Dame Kelly Holmes Trust since 2015, helping hundreds of young people build resilience help Get them On Track to personal success.


A Starting Block is the person, place or moment that inspired you to become who you are today. Not every young person has the opportunity or inspiration to unlock their potential and find their Starting Block in life.


SCL CEO, Dave kickstarted the team's efforts earlier this year.

"My starting block was in the build up to the London 2012 Olympics and helping bring an overnight stop for the Torch Relay to Dover. This was the culmination of several years work and marked a particularly poignant year for me. My cycling challenge will follow the route of London 2012 Olympic Torch relay, allowing me to reflect on what the experience meant to me, and how it set me off on my current life and career path."


This challenge is a great opportunity to experience challenges similar to the young people that have been supported on our programmes, while raising essential funds for future projects.
