Dame Kelly Holmes Legacy Trust
Dame Kelly Holmes is best known for her international athletics career.
Kelly wanted to create a legacy from her athletics career that would benefit the young people who look up to, and are inspired by elite sports performers like herself.
Having seen first hand the difference that world class sports performers can make to kids' lives, Dame Kelly set up her own charity, the DKH Legacy Trust. Its mission is to 'create life chances for young people'.
Uniquely, every young person that the Trust supports has the chance to work with, be inspired by, and learn from the experience of world class sports stars.
The charity's team of Olympians, Paralympians, World, Commonwealth and European Champions know what it takes to overcome adversity, and still have the will to succeed, not only in sport, but in life too.
"I’m thrilled that my charity, the DKH Legacy Trust, has become the charity partner to the Golden Mile. This is a fantastic initiative that will encourage so many to commit to an active and healthy lifestyle. Thanks to this partnership, we will be able to continue creating life chances for young people." Dame Kelly Holmes, Double Olympic Gold Medallist
The Golden Mile has already raised well over £44,000 for the charity.We want this amount to keep growing because every young person the charity works with has the chance to work with, and be inspired by Olympic, Paralympic World and Commonwealth Champions. Through mentoring and support, we encourage young people to reach their potential and be the best they can be.
