Active Kids ambassador
Jonnie’s back as an Active Kids ambassador for the fifth time, fresh from Paralympic glory where he defied all the odds to pick up his second title.
Now a double Paralympic, World and European Champion in the T44 100m, he’s become one of Britain’s most successful and recognised Paralympic athletes – and deservedly so.
‘Encouraging kids to participate in sport is a passion of mine. I got into athletics by having a go at a number of sports, before deciding that the 100m was the one for me. This is my fifth year supporting the Active Kids campaign and I’m incredibly proud of the difference it’s made to children across the UK. The children and parents I meet throughout the year all talk about the positive benefits of the campaign, so I hope everyone starts collecting vouchers so we can continue to make a difference.’
