While the Commonwealth Games is unfolding in Bermingham, we have our own version of athletics, games, food and fun last Saturday 30th of July at the London Marathon Community Track stadium.
The Gmax&Breadwinners World Record Athletics Event – Fundraising to give young refugees the opportunity to get into Atheltism through GMAX scholarship.
Over 120 refugee and 200 participants from our 10 charity partners and friends GMAX, CompassCollective, Coram, BritishRedCross, DOST, Hope for the Young, TheBikeProject, YoungRoots, Caras, FootballUnited, run, played, eat and shared a very active day together.
A big shout out to GMAX and Breadwinners core teams who put the event together, and to everyone who participated!
A particular special mention to Will Stafford, who inspired the Gmax and Breadwinner partnership and deserves so much credit for managing the fundraising, marketing and logistics of the event, before and after—Thank you Will!
Also to Compass Youth Leaders Nhial and Yordanos helped organise the penalty shootouts, which were followed by Relay races, Limbo and Dancing, food and fun. It was a day to remember. To top everything up, GMAX young people achieved the world record for 22 runners in 400mts Relay on 23:10.49!!!!
