Kate Middleton, who is a patron of the SportsAid charity, which helps British athletes in reaching their potential, will attend the foundation’s athlete workshop to be held at the Copper Box at the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in London on Oct. 18.
This will be Kate’s first official visit with the SportsAid athletes and their parents since she was elected a patron of the charity foundation in April this year, according to Kensington Palace. At the workshop, Kate, 31, will watch young athletes playing various sports which includes, football, wheelchair basketball, that are adapted for those having Cerebral Palsy, and badminton, fencing and volleyball.
Kate, who gave birth to her first son Prince George on July 22, will also be present with the athletes and their parents for educational seminars on media, nutrition and social media training.
Since SportsAid was established in 1976, it has covered essential expenses like travel, training, competitions, and equipment costs for aspiring athletes. According to the foundation’s website, two-thirds of the entire Great Britain team at the 2012 London Olympics and the Paralympics Games were supported by SportsAid during some points of their sporting careers.
And, you can definitely recall from the London Olympics that Kate and Prince William are huge fans of Team GB.
