Events

The DFQ vs. Daggers Legends

May 25, 2019

From April 2019 Sports Connections Foundation are going to be working in partnership The Davies Family Quest for Klinefelter Syndrome Awareness. The DFQ are a small family who are looking to fundraise and raise awareness for Klinefelter Syndrome due to a member of their family being diagnosed with the syndrome.

Klinefelter syndrome (sometimes called Klinefelter's, KS or XXY) is where boys and men are born with an extra X chromosome. KS is quite common, affecting around 1 in every 660 males, but it is not commonly heard of, and The DFQ and our aim is to raise awareness and the profile of this incurable condition.

The family are based in Dagenham and with our co-founder Junior previously having played football for Dagenham & Redbridge FC we will see Team DFQ play a charity match against a team of Daggers Legends!

It promises to be a great fun filled day for all and will be hosted at The Chigwell Construction Stadium in Dagenham and entry is free (with donations welcome)

Cycle Splash Dash '18

The summer time is here again and we will be hosting our annual Cycle, Splash & Dash event at David Lloyds in Cambridge to raise money to fund Sporting Wishes.

 

Over the next 12 months we aim to deliver at lease 10 memorable days for children facing life-limiting illnesses.

 

Over the last 2 years the support you've given us has been amazing as you chipped in and helped get as much mileage done, whether in the pool, on the treadmill or on the exercise bikes so why not save the date and come down to join the SCF team and get involved on Sunday 19th August!

 

With Sporting Wishes costing, on average, £1,500 we are once more aiming to cover 1,500 miles. It won't be easy but after such a huge success last year we're sure we can get to our target again.

Along with the activities that will be running throughout the day we will also have our annual auction, with an incredible selection of prizes to bid on.

 

You can also show support to others and enjoy the use of the outdoor pool and bar area, live music, BBQ and other entertainment that will be available on the day for the whole family to enjoy. More details are to follow, but for now, make sure Sunday 19th August is in your diary!

The Ben Nevis Challenge!

September 09, 2017

Sports Connections Foundation are once again grabbing our fundraising buckets, this time for a day of wall climbing at The Seprentine Green Shopping Centre in Hampton, Peterborough. From 10am until 4pm, we aim to climb Ben Nevis, which is 1,345 metres in height - then turn those metres into pounds to help vulnerable & disadvantaged children in the UK.​

The 2 person climbing wall supplied by Warehouse Climbing Centre in Gloucester, is 5 metres high, & the staff at Tesco have agreed to help us with our target - get your cameras ready! There will also be fun mini challenges for the kids - you can have a go at kicking a ball into our giant ProKick goal, which measures the speed of your kick so you can compare it to the professionals! Or can you guess the name of our SCF bear for your chance to win one of many prizes including VIP tickets to a Premier league match!

There will also be sports personalities attending on the day, to impress us with their own kicking skills, & help with the climbing target.

 

The children you will be helping by supporting this event will be truly grateful - a couple of them are hoping to attend the event so you may even meet the little heroes! The charity help disadvantaged & vulnerable children with our Inspire Through Sport mentor programme, which helps to lead these young children away from a life of crime & poverty. Some of the children that SCF help, face life limiting illnesses every day of their lives meaning they are confined to wheelchairs etc. But they keep smiling & living life as much as they can, so having something to look forward to & share memories with their families, such as a Sporting Wish to meet their fave football team that SCF can provide, means the world to them.

SCF do the Great Eastern Run

October 07, 2017

Once again we need those champions of jogging to don their trainers in aid of a special cause - & who better to support than SCF! Your generous donations helped to raise lots last year - let's see if we can beat that this year (& our running times!) to help more children in need of Sporting Wishes!
