I recently attended the DKH Legacy Trust Regional Get on Track GO event in Manchester, held at the Manchester City football ground.

‘Get on Track’ is a personal development programme that provides young adults with stepping stones into volunteering, work placements and employment opportunities. The young adults are supported through this process by elite sports mentors who, having experienced the highs and lows of world class competition, know what it is like to face adversity and overcome the odds to succeed.

The most recent Get on Track in Wigan has just came to a close and tonight was all about celebrating the young peoples’ success and hearing from the graduates themselves. Of course Dame Kelly was in attendance and gave an extremely inspiring talk to the crowd and we got to hear from the Wigan lead athlete mentors Charlotte Hartley (international hockey) and Neil Danns (former European and British Skateboard Champion) on the success of the programme.
