On Sunday 28 April 2019, I will be taking on the opportunity of a lifetime and joining thousands of runners in the Virgin London Marathon! As a newcomer to running, this marathon is a huge one-off challenge for me, but nothing compared to the immense challenges many young people and their families face every day.
After many years of working in education, both in the UK and overseas, and having witnessed the desperate lives some children lead, I am keen to use my run to support the award-winning charity, Chance for Childhood. A key priority for this charity is to help some of the world’s most vulnerable and ‘hard to reach’ children access quality education in the belief that this is the best way to help them build a better future.
PLEASE support me in fund-raising for Chance for Childhood knowing that all the running I do around the quiet roads of Cumbria (often in the rain...), and then on marathon day in busy London (hopefully in the dry...) will help to make a real difference.
Genuinely, it doesn’t matter how small the donation, all amounts will be gratefully received - and every penny will go to Chance for Childhood.
THANK YOU SO MUCH!
