Task 1

Be a Good Sport

Whether your children join pals for a Junior parkrun, try out that new swimming stroke or learn the latest dance craze, help them to find a brand-new way to get moving and tick off your first activity.

Task 5

Be a Good Champion

Which sporting heroes do your children look up to? Maybe it’s someone like Paralympic hero Hollie Arnold. Maybe it’s their favourite Gladiator, like our chums Fire and Apollo?! Maybe it’s their Auntie Janice who just ran her first marathon! To tick off task 5 they need to tell us about who they admire and why- they can write about them, read a book, or even draw a picture- we want to know what really makes a champion.

Task 6

Be a good you

Your children have done some serious good, and so our final task is all about them. For this task we want them to do something that will help them to be the very best version of themselves. Go for a walk in nature, practice some mindfulness, or take some time to do the things they love with the people they care about most.

How Being a Good Sport makes a BIG difference

For 20 years, our Sport for Change funding has been supporting projects in the UK and across the world to tackle poverty and injustice through the power of sport.

By taking part, you can help more children, who would otherwise miss out because of poverty, exclusion or discrimination, get access to vital services like summer holiday sports clubs, where they can make friends, learn a new skill and access nutritious food.

Sport at the Heart is one of StreetGames London projects. StreetGames is funded by Comic Relief, as part of the Sport Relief campaign.
