Hello, I’m Gemma. I work in marketing, enjoy eating peanut butter, love the sea & being outdoors. In 2019 I have decided to take some time off in order to give my time, energy & skills to charities doing amazing work to change the lives of others.

I’m not very good at running long distances, nor do I have experience doing this in the heat of an African country, but if in some way this challenge can help to sponsor even one child who needs support, funds for education or a community to call home then it will be so worth it. I want to change other’s lives for the better and I know that Compassion’s work does just that.

If you have ever thought of sponsoring a child then surely the picture of me struggling after the first kilometre in the middle of Rwanda is reason enough to make it now! You will literally be changing a life.
