I’ve been walking for AAC for about 6 years now and the club has given me generous encouragement and support as well as £50 towards the English Schools Championships. After winning the national titles in my 2 years of U17, I hope I can also be successful when I move up into the U20 age group and become a junior international at some major games.

Power of Ten for Jonathan
