Sevenoaks Athletics Club and the Dame Kelly Holmes Trust have agreed that the Sevenoaks 7 race, to be held on August 31st will raise money for the Dame Kelly Holmes Trust.
The Trust’s mission is to get lives on track by using world-class athletes to engage, enable and empower disadvantaged young people, and in the past 12 months has helped over 50,000 youngsters throughout the UK.
Their flagship national programme "Get on Track" is a personal development and training programme for young people aged 16-25 who are not in employment, education or training. The young people are mentored through a 5-stage programme for a minimum of 14 months by a team of world Class athletes.
The trust has delivered 3 programmes in Kent and has achieved impressive results - afterwards 84% were participating regularly in sport, 70% were in education, employment or training, 46% were regularly volunteering.
Alexandra Lines from the Dame Kelly Holmes trust said, "At a time where there are more than one million 16-25-year-olds not in education, employment or training (NEET) in the UK, our work is now more important than ever. We are delighted to be working with Sevenoaks Athletics Club to help more youngsters in Kent".
Race Director Duncan Warwick Champion said, "Here is a great opportunity to test your speed and strength on Knole Park's hills whilst raising money for a very good local cause. Afterwards, why not enjoy a picnic in the park, visit the historic Knole House, the largest house in England, with its 365 rooms and 52 staircases, (owned by the National Trust) or simply relax in one of Sevenoaks many pubs and restaurants".
