2020 awards to support the next generation of British athletes
With a focus on Health & Wellbeing, the Milton Keynes Business Achievement Awards (MKBAA) 2020 are pleased to support the next generation of British Sports stars. One of these inspirational young people, 16 year old Megan Wyatt, spoke at the launch of MKBAA 2020 and has just been ranked number one in the UK for Indoor Climbing.
The theme for this years’ awards and the increased requirement to support local young people to achieve their career aspirations, meant SportsAid, the charity that helps the next generation at the start of their careers, was the perfect match for MKBAA 2020.
Mark Ormerod, Chairman of SportsAid Eastern explains: “We are so proud of Megan, who has qualified first in her category (aged 15-17) across combined disciplines in the UK for the 2019 season. We were delighted when the British Mountaineering Council released selection details recently to see that Megan had been confirmed automatically for the GB National Development Squad 2020 due to her ranking as No 1 Combined Discipline Athlete in the UK in her category”.
“Without support from businesses and organisations, such as MKBAA, we wouldn’t be able to provide this much needed support to enable young people to progress within their sport and achieve their full potential. When young people are starting out in their careers there is a lot of pressure on parents, not only to get them to training, competitions and events, but also to fund their child at a competitive level. We would like to thank MKBAA and the business community for helping to raise the profile and funds for SportsAid.”
MKBAA will take place on 12 March 2020 at Marshall Arena with over 750 of Milton Keynes leading business people expected to join the annual celebration.
