My name is Josh and I'm studying Mechanical Engineering at the University of Birmingham. I am 20 years old, and this year, am running the London Marathon 2021 to raise money for the UK Charity Compassion. Any donation is greatly appreciated!

Feel free to track my training on strava:

Compassion's aim as a charity is simple: to release children from poverty. Compassion work with children from all over the world, providing opportunities for them to play safely whilst gaining a vital education. It is a complete injustice for children to be born into poverty, let alone face limited opportunities in improving their quality of life.

Amidst a pandemic in which we have all faced difficult adjustment, children in poverty have been impacted disproportionately. Coming from an environment of privilege, I want to help bring about change, and am therefore thrilled to be able to run for Compassion to help raise money for such a great cause!
