Compassion Challenges -Emiko Ray

Challenger Profile


Emiko Ray

Challenge Date:

15 June 2018

My Challenge:

I am running for those children and families in Kenya who need help. I have seen first hand in Uganda and Rwanda the amazing work that Compassion does, working tirelessly to give every child a purposeful and fulfilling life through their health, education and care programmes. Running this marathon in an extreme location with 4MUK ( and asking people to sponsor these children, as well as to donate money is a way I can play my part and involve others too. Together we can make such a difference.




Sponsored Target:

Online Total: £585.00

Offline Total: £1,836.23

Gift Aid: £141.25

I have some great men in my life, my husband, my 3 boys and a lot of gorgeous 7 hens! I love food, zumba and a 'jobs' list!

I am relatively new at all this marathon running stuff and honestly, I don't do it because I love it, I am not one of these people who 'enjoys' a marathon but doing this really costs me in time, in effort and in body pain and reminds me that the discomfort I may feel is very little compared to the lives of those I am running for.
