Run Like A Girl
All over the world, there are female athletes breaking barriers, pushing limits and achieving amazing things, but where did their journeys begin? And what challenges did they have to overcome to get where they are today?
Run Like a Girl is a collection of fascinating biographical stories of 50 highly successful sportswomen, from boxing superstar Nicola Adams to record-breaking yachtswoman Ellen MacArthur and fearless mountain biker Rachel Atherton. As well as giving an insight into their influences, motivations and achievements, each story reminds us that failing can teach us just as much as winning; success isn't limited to the sports field; and 'running like a girl' can lead you all the way to the top.

Run Like A Girl: Gift A Copy To A Girl
The messages we receive in childhood help shape the person we grow into. Role models give living examples of success and the pathway to get there, helping transform a dream of the future into a reality. If we can see it we can be it. It's important that role models are accessible and relatable, and I want to make sure that any girl can access opportunities that set themselves up for the future regardless of her age, ability, or background.
1 in 8 children don't own a book - I want to change this, but I can't do it alone. I need your help. EVERY book gifted will be sent to a school in an area of deprivation, to benefit girls who dream of a future in sport but might struggle with the cost.
Your donation will be very gratefully received.
