Mission 4 Gambia

Welcome to my blog if today is your first time here, I hope you enjoy the read! If you have been here before, welcome back!

In today’s blog, I will highlight an important project that I am taking part in. Also, I will be talking to you about 10k steps challenge I’m currently doing for a project in Gambia towards girls football.

That’s right, I’m doing 10 thousand steps I’m doing everyday. I have recently read studies that found taking 10,000 steps a day could be related to health benefits, such as lower blood pressure, better blood glucose levels and improved mood.

During Covid-19’s pandemic we all should try to stay active. For me I have found a way to make a difference to girls – 10k steps for £10 donations!

 

17834 steps – Highest steps to beat! I put on this watch around 10am until Midnight. The steps on the watch reset at midnight – During the day I push towards the 10k steps target on a daily basis!

Lockdown has been good to me. I found ways to stay active by walking, jogging, running, playing football, etc! My biggest motivation comes from pushing myself to stay on top of my fitness and well-being. I also hate getting bored if I’m not on the move / challenging myself, let’s see if I could beat 17834 steps.

the many blessings that has come my way during this lockdown is getting back into football and networking with people in the sports sector on social media. I love the power of social media, the connections I have made with people in the sports industry has been ground-breaking. I have learnt so much already in the space of few months. I hope the learning keepings on coming until I become an expert in football and in other sports.

Through football I was able to connect with Shaz the founder of Super 5 League (The largest 5-A-Side women’s league in London.) Shaz is a considerate brother, he has recently put together Super 5 Presents as the league’s charity ventures. Check out Super 5 League on instagram page at – @super5league – My sisters at Star Sisters FC will be apart of the beginners division at Super 5 League’s tournament, visit the club’s instagram page over at – @starsistersfc

Super 5 Presents is in collaboration with Golden Youth Football Academy (GYFA) – They are a registered charity in The Gambia founded by brothers from London. Visit their page on instagram – @gyfa_ … to see the work they are doing! They focus on football academy for youth and community development.
