About us Fundraise The Starting Blocks Challenge A Starting Block is the person, place or moment that inspired you to become who you are today. Get sponsored to run, walk, swim or ride the distance back to where your story started. Share your experience and inspire others to go back to give back. Not every young person has the opportunity or inspiration to unlock their potential and find their Starting Block in life. The Starting Blocks Challenge is your way to help Dame Kelly Holmes Trust change what’s possible for young people who are facing challenges in their everyday lives. The Trust believe all young people must have an equal opportunity to be the best versions of themselves. We are here to equip them with the positive behaviours and mindset they need to tackle the disadvantage they face due to inequality in their everyday lives. By raising money through the Starting Blocks Challenge, you will help us support 10,000 young people become the best version of themselves over the next ten years. To get involved, head over to our dedicated registration platform. The Trust will be with you every step, stroke or pedal of the way and everyone who raises over £250 will receive a special Starting Blocks medal to recognise their achievement. The Starting Blocks Challenge is powered by our Double Gold partner Westfield Health. It is also sponsored by Gold partners Chartwells and our Silver Partners, Baker Mallett.
