  Sport Relief launched to help kids
Updated 05 March 2002, 16.54
Some of the stars backing Sport Relief
Sporting heroes like David Beckham and Sir Steve Redgrave have formed a dream team to help children around the world.

They've joined loads of top stars in backing Sport Relief - a joint campaign between Comic Relief and BBC Sport to raise money for good causes.

Sport Relief will get people to hold hundreds of fundraising events around the country this summer.

One of the main ideas is 'pay to play' where everyone, including top sports players, will cough up money to play their game.

Help the poorest countries

And it'll all finish with a huge TV show on BBC One on 13 July, a bit like Comic Relief night.

Half of the money raised will go to sports projects to help children in the UK, and the rest will go to children in some of the poorest countries in the world.

Other big names who've signed up for Sport Relief are tennis ace Tim Henman, cricket's Mike Atherton, rugby star Martin Offiah and TV presenters Gary Lineker and Nick Hancock.
