Rufus…an enthusiastic junior alpine ski racer turned snowboarder who, during a “short break” after almost two decades in investment banking, found his life instantly and irreversibly hijacked the moment he walked into his first British Disabled Ski Team meeting in 2015.
“It was the beginning of a humbling and truly awesome journey through the world of para-sport…a fascinating and exhilarating re-connection with the skiing world I thought I knew, yet found myself embarrassingly oblivious to the bravery and determination required merely for a para-athlete to be on the starting line!”
“This is a world not just packed full of hope-inspiring Paralympians but also a fair few actual medal-touting, life-saving heroes!
You become a better person just by being in their presence!”
“I am immensely grateful for this utterly and fantastically random experience, however it was not all roses.
It was also a stark reminder of just how stressful and distracting the annual scramble for funding remains.”
“Having become somewhat of a spreadsheet ninja while slowly expanding in front of a Bloomberg Computer Terminal, I have become obsessed with finding the best way to simplify the donation process while maximising the effect of tax incentives (such as Gift Aid)”
“From the interest we have already received, it seems we aren’t alone in thinking Giving for Sport is a solution worth investigating!”
“It’s work in progress, but that progress is definitely working”
