On 23rd April, Sgt Scott Hill from RAF Honington will be taking part in the London Marathon in a bid to help RAF sporting people and their families.
Scott will be running the London Marathon as a good for age athlete having run a previous marathon sub 3 hours but this time he is running for others.
His aim for doing this is to raise funds for the Central Fund Charity.
The Central fund is a registered charity originally founded by serving RAF personnel in 1919, dedicated to enhance wellbeing, moral and community cohesion of those serving today!
Sgt Scott Hill
Having been supported himself over the years by the RAF, RAF Triathlon and RAF Central Fund, Scott has said: "It would be a pleasure to help others with a little help towards their goals whatever their levels whether first time or seasoned athletes.
"Sport is and should be a big part in all those that serve as it helps in many aspects such as stimulating the body and mind, encourages team spirit and working with others bringing on key skills such as leadership and dedication. It is clear that sport has helped in the form of recovery, as it keeps our minds active and willing to achieve and you see that week in week our with the recovery of our injured service personnel who continue to push the boundaries in all that they do.
"Coaching civilian triathlon clubs, as well as RAF triathletes has given me so much self-belief and made me proud to represent the RAF, with the willingness to keep pushing forward although it is very tough working in a role within the RAF Regiment that requires so much time at RTSA.
"I have seen great improvements within RAF Honington’s Tri Club as I coach them regularly; it has been a pleasure and I hope to see more take up the sport."
