As a by-product of the scholarship programme there is an additional benefit. Anyone who shared our schools, our commuter trains or simply encountered us through the horrific story of the loss of such a happy, uncomplicated and much loved child will have all been touched by this tragedy. The realization that awful things happen to ordinary people and that it could happen to any one of us with such appalling consequences has motivated a whole generation of fortunate young people to want to fundraise and take on incredible life altering challenges in Archie’s memory. We want them to be inspired by what we are able to achieve not only with philanthropy but also by stepping out of our comfort zone to be challenged and by encountering those whose lives can be changed for the better by being given just a tiny piece of the opportunity afforded to them. These young people will continue to run marathons, jump out of aeroplanes, climb mountains, cross continents and cycle around countries for years to come. At some point in the future they will mentor and work with teamArchie. This is the legacy that Archie leaves and we are proud to be able to share him with so many incredible supporters.
If you would like to undertake a challenge for teamArchie please do contact us.
