Take a journey across the world with the click of a button and travel 5457 miles to Guatemala to meet Alex, Famuel, Mayra Kelita and Cristina. Go to Sport Relief Guatemala, where you take part in an amazing interactive adventure to find out about their lives, dreams for the future and how they are making their worlds better.
Navigate your way around the dangerous streets of Guatemala City, collect the trump cards, read the life books and discover how some of the children helped by Sport Relief live their lives. You can see what Mayra Kelita plants in the fields, why Alex isn’t allowed to go out on his own and who Famuel’s favourite footballer is!
Find out even more about our Sport Relief stars in a special show on Monday 10th July CBBC at 5pm, with Reggie Yates as he travels to Guatemala with two young people from the UK. Join them as they live alongside Famuel and Cristina for a whole week; eating the same food, doing the same work and learning new games. They discover that life is a little different for their South American friends! For more details take a look at Reggie in Guatemala.
