Support and passion of British public has made our event such a success says Sport Relief CEO

0 0
Kevin Cahill, the CEO of Comic Relief and Sport Relief, has praised the support and passion of the British public for making the biennial charity event such a huge success.

Sport Relief 2014 – which will be the seventh edition of Sport Relief – will take place from March 21 to 23 with a whole host of sporting activity and entertainment set to take place across the UK in order to raise money for charity.

As the long-time Comic Relief CEO, Cahill is credited with coming up with the idea of Sport Relief and he then played a leading role in bringing about the first edition of the charity event in 2002.

But Cahill says it is the British public who have helped transform the event into what it is today.  

"I've always been amazed, and moved, by the support and passion of the British public, which makes Sport Relief such a success,” Cahill exclusively told Community Sport Network.

"It's a surprise to me that it's grown so much since the first one only 12 years ago, and I think in 2012 it felt like Sport Relief had really come of age. 

"That was a brilliant year, and I'm hopeful this one will be just as good!”

Cahill also claimed that there is a huge amount for the public to look forward to for Sport Relief 2014 – including an original Only Fools and Horses special featuring former England captain David Beckham.
 
"There are so many special treats coming our way over the Sport Relief Weekend,” he said.

"You've just got to stay in on March 21st for a top night of telly - hopefully everyone has already put it in their diary so they don't miss an original Only Fools and Horses special with David Beckham.  

"There'll be loads more to look forward to, as it's coming live from the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park this year.  

"And none other than Lord Coe and John Bishop and two teams will be going head to head in a bunch of Olympic events!

"And then of course, we all need to get off the sofa and out and about on the Sunday, and take part in the Sainsbury's Sport Relief Games. 

"This year, for the first time, the public can swim and cycle at the events, as well as run.

There are over a thousand events taking place all over the country, including Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, and whether you want to take a mile long stroll or cycle 50 miles there's something for everyone."
