Natasha Mina started kickboxing aged 8 and started competing at age 12. Due to other commitments her participation became irregular around school age. She came through the local WISPA project (women in sport and physical activity) which re-motivated her to get back into sport and physical activity. She is now fully engaged by participating herself and coaching kickboxing.
Kim Angell, Running Activator and her Birstall Mum's School Gate Beginner's Running Group
Since starting her role as Running Activator, lots of mum's at Kim's Primary School said they would love to give running a go. Kim started a School Gate Run for beginners which was a great way for parents to drop their kids off at school, do 45mins of exercise and be back home by 10am! After 4 weeks the group is still going strong.
