The Storytellers

Meet storytellers like you

We come together here to share stories about the power of sport to change lives and to change communities.

The storytellers you'll meet here are just like you - they have experienced sport in a way that captures its positive power to make a difference for one person or for many.

These storytellers took a simple first step and shared their story here for you - to help you learn from the experience, to generate conversations about sport4change, and to encourage you to share a story about how sport made change around you.
