The Wellington Community Department is delighted to be supporting Jake O’Leary and Conor Morrisroe, who are going to be running the Manchester Marathon on 5th April for Sebs Foundation, both of whom were at Wellington College with Seb.
Seb’s Foundation was established to bring hope from tragedy, following the death of Seb Adeniran-Olule, aged 20, in a road traffic collision in 2016.
Seb was academically gifted and a talented rugby player, playing for the First XV for both Whitgift School and Wellington College. A Harlequins Academy player, dual registered with Richmond FC, Seb represented England at the U16, U18 and U20s age groups and was a member of the U20s team that became Six Nations Champions in 2015.
Seb’s Foundation was set up in his memory to support those who would not normally be able to afford the academic and sporting opportunities he enjoyed. It’s the Fund’s mission to help youngsters realise their full potential in the same way that Seb was able to do during his all-too-short life. A pupil of Wellington College, Seb was gifted in the classroom and on the rugby pitch. Wellington welcomed the first Seb Scholar in January 2018.
