This year as part of my mid life crisis (a happy event) I have accepted the challenge to run a marathon in Rwanda, and raise £10,000 to support children's development and/or to find up to 10 people to commit £25 a month to sponsor a child. This will be a life changing experience for the children, as well as for me.

To support children reach their full potential they receive support for school tuition, materials and uniforms, medical care, health and hygiene education, nutritional meals and recreational activities. Their parents or guardians receive support on child development along with health and hygiene education. As a Christian organisation they also receive support in the faith and Christian belief.

26.2 miles is rather a long way but a very small step when it brightens lives. God Bless.
