Take on your own challenge!

Everybody likes to challenge themselves at some point or other in their lives.  Be it abseiling to running a marathon, to swimming the channel there are plenty of personal challenges to choose from.

Why not support  and raise funds to help give vulnerable young people a chance in life; to get their lives back on track and achieve some major achievements in their life.  With your help and our support we can make this happen.

If you would like to take up a challenge and fundraise for Eikon, please get in touch we would love to hear about it and help you along the way.

My name is Silvie and I have decided to support Eikon because I believe that every person has right to fulfil their potential but not always has been given a chance. The reasons could be different, lack of support from the family, struggle at school or even poor health.

And I have experienced it all. But I did not give up, I have pulled myself together even when it wasn’t easy at times and studied hard, travelled and worked abroad, gain lots of valuable experience and learned lots of lessons, good and bad ones too.

I am not saying that it has healed all wounds as there will be always some scars left but I did not give up. I have stopped listening to the people who said I cannot do this and I cannot do that because I do not have the ability or I am not smart enough. I have taken the control and proved them wrong.

I never thought I could run more than couple of miles before I wouldSilvie fall on my face or jump over obstacles or climb a mountain but I did, I have trained, believed but most importantly I have tried. I did not expect to win a gold medal but I have achieved my goal.

To sum this up whoever reads this story, stay strong, believe in yourself, follow your heart and make your dreams come true.
