WHAT IS YOUR MORE?

Providing Educational Resources

Being privileged to travel the world training and racing, Laura is passionate to ensure she can do so whilst also giving back to the local communities, and More Than Sport was an organisation that struck a chord with her, and she immediately wanted to be involved. We forget how very privilege we are to have had an education. Watch the film, "On the Way to School" and you will realize how we take our education for granted. For many it's such a powerful gift. Laura's goal through her sport and career is to help provide education and resources around the world, which in turn give children opportunities and a chance to make change happen.
