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.
