I am writing to update you on an exciting new event hosted by Kids Are People Too, This year, to coincide with the upcoming World Championship which will be held again right on our doorstep at the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Stadium, I am planning to host a “Children of the World” sporting festival at Battersea Park’s athletic arena on 13th May.
Just like our popular events from last year such as a Youth Olympics to coincide with the Rio games for London school children; this is set to be a huge success, with world class athletes such as Daley Thompson and Tessa Sanderson attending and supporting.
Children of the World will give all kids an opportunity to compete in their chosen events, to learn about the rich history of the Modern Olympic Games and learn and experience the diverse cultures of the local community.
Participating in the Children of the World is just the spring-board for many of these children becoming outstanding athletes who have the potential to go on and represent Great Britain.
I would love to get as many children in the community involved as possible, and draw on the excitement surrounding the World Championships and would be delighted if pupils from your school could take part.
If this is something you or your school might be interested in, should you have any questions, please feel free to get in touch via my contact page.
All the best,
