GymNation | Heroes of Hope Believers & Achievers
We have launched the GymNation Athletes Internship Program in partnership with our friends at UAE-based non-profit charity, Heroes of Hope. Through this paid internship program, together, we will provide People of Determination with the very best opportunities, and support them in gaining real work and life experience.
About Heroes of Hope
Heroes of Hope is a non-profit, charity group that developed from Sports Heroes Academy, which was founded in 2013, by Hollie Murphy. Hollie, a PE teacher, had students of determination that she knew she could help grow and develop through a sports program. Year on year, more athletes (our Heroes), more coaches and more venues have come on board to enable a stronger community support group for people of determination aged 3-35+ today, across many sporting disciplines and ability levels.
Heroes of Hope's Mission
Heroes of Hope's mission is to support People of Determination in sport and with the very best opportunities.
"We believe sport is for all, inclusion in sport and society, and that all those involved should be given a full opportunity to experience sport to its fullest capacity."
"We provide opportunities in sport for all ages and all abilities."
