It’s been an amazing year for me winning…. European and National Aquathlon Champion in my Age Group, competing in my first Duathlon and coming 2nd, winning my first triathlon and so on. I am delighted to say Baotic, having supported my journey, have had their own recent success now launching their delicious ‘Baobab & Strawberry’ and ‘Baobab and Banana’ smoothie drinks on Ocado.
I couldn’t of achieved my success without the kind support of sponsors and their commitment and belief in me at every stage. One which I haven’t talked much about, because they have asked very little of me, preferring to allow me to get on, train, perform and enjoy, is Drink Baotic.
I’m careful about the type of sponsors that I work with and make sure they align with my values, but Baotic are an incredible social enterprise that I admire greatly. Baotics founders have a 10 year background supporting poverty reduction in rural Gambia, and their mission is to inspire and empower healthy communities around the world.
I have enjoyed running in their UK running challenge @MegaMeterRun which helps people run consistently for the year through an inspiring and motivating online community (join their 50x5k, 100x5k, 200x5k, or 50x10k and 100x10k challenges for 2020!). All entry proceeds help launch community owned co-operative gardens in The Gambia to help improve income, health and nutrition. Which is very good and the same time made some friends out of this challenge.
Although they don’t shout about it, they also help young people in The Gambia with access to sport and sponsor students to improve their education. I’ve enjoy drinking their Baobab drinks. They are low sugar and not too sweet, instead have a nice citrus flavour, blended with 100% natural fruits with a nice kick to them. The fact they are naturally high in electrolyte vitamins: potassium, magnesium, calcium and vitamin C is a bonus!
They have not expected me to push sales in any way, but if you do try them on Ocado please consider leaving a review. I have enjoyed the community in running, and found it so supportive. It’s great to also help inspiring businesses with a genuine social purpose to flourish. Check there website here
