With rowing partner Zac Purchase, Mark Hunter won Great Britain’s first-ever gold medal in the lightweight double scull rowing event at the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing. The duo went on to win silver in the same event at the London Olympics in 2012.

In support of our programming in Africa, Mark travelled to Tanzania and participated in our games with the kids, witnessing the positive impact our specially-designed activities have on the well-being of children. An inspiring advocate, Mark speaks at engagements and attends functions, such as: Right To Play Gala Dinners in the UK in 2012 and 2013, and our inaugural Golf Day with global corporate partner Polycom in 2013. Mark also ran the London Royal Parks Half Marathon and cycled from Tours, France to London, UK in our support.

“I know a lot about the charity and love the work they do, but visiting the programmes, seeing the kids playing the games made me realise the full extent of what they do; the laughter and smiles running parallel with important issues such as health awareness make these activities fun and necessary for the kids’ lives.”
