Sport Changes Lives - Mark Cavendish joins fellow Olympians in Tanzania to support Right To Play
Riding on the back of the London 2012 wave Right To Play have sent three of their Athlete Ambassadors to witness first-hand how the charity’s sport & play programmes change children lives in Tanzania.
Mark Cavendish, together with Crista Cullen (GB hockey player, London 2012 bronze medallist) and Mark Hunter (GB rower, silver at London 2012, gold at Beijing 2008) have spent this week with Right To Play projects, meeting the children, taking part in the sport and play games and talking about what sport means to them.
Right To Play is the leading Sport for Development organisation, born out of the Olympic movement 12 years ago. Working in 18 countries across the developing world they reach out to over 835,000 children each and every week.
