With just a few weeks to go until the Sport Relief weekend everyone, from children to celebrities, is gearing up for the Sainsbury’s Sport Relief Mile in Milton Keynes.

The talented kids at the Milton Keynes Cheerleading Academy are getting in on the action too!

Last week the Milton Keynes Cheerleading Academy went the extra mile to inspire the people of Milton Keynes to enter the Sainsbury’s Sport Relief Mile on Sunday, March 25.

Treating spectators to an incredible high-kicking spectacle, the kids performed an amazing acrobatic routine complete with a special Sport Relief chant created just for the occasion. Kitted out in their Sport Relief T-Shirts, Socks and deely boppers, the cheerleaders bent over backwards to spread the Sport Relief message – spelling out ‘SR12’ with their pom poms and backflipping, cartwheeling and body popping across the Sport Relief finish line.

Used to being in the limelight, these talented youngsters, aged from six years upwards, literally jumped at the opportunity to help support Sport Relief and cheer Milton Keynes on to enter the Mile on Sunday 25th March.

Miki Garratt, head coach said: “The Sport Relief Mile, just like cheerleading, is a great way to have fun and get active with friends. We love what Sport Relief does and we want everyone to enter the Milton Keynes Mile where we will be cheering you on. Go Milers!”

This year, over one million people are expected to pull up their Sport Relief Socks and take part in the Sainsbury’s Sport Relief Mile to raise vital funds for vulnerable people here in Milton Keynes, across the UK and in the world’s poorest countries.
