Age: 19
Year of the Fix: 2014
Location: Salisbury, Wiltshire
Campaign: To show the benefits of freerunning

Taking up freerunnning helped me turn my life around.

I’d dropped out of school and had no qualifications, but then I discovered the activity and things changed.

I believe it can teach discipline and help others to focus on something positive.

Along with Fixers, Kaylum Sapseid and the rest of our team, I want to challenge the view that freerunning is an anti-social activity.

Others our age should be encouraged to give it a go – as long as they’re willing to train and practice it safely.

Here is a list of Fixers helping me with my Fix:

 

Alexander Hickes James Yorke
Kaylum Batchelor Kaylum Sapseid
Liam Tomes Luke Stones
Nile Wade Ollie Addis
Stanley Ewena Stephanie Biggs
