Compassion Challenges -Rebecca Jemmett

Challenger Profile


Rebecca Jemmett

Challenge Date:

29th May 2022

My Challenge:

We're long time supporters of Compassion and the great work they do to support children and their families to escape poverty through education, training and meaningful relationships with local churches around the world.

I'm running the Edinburgh Marathon to help Compassion raise money to build a house in Rwanda mothers and babies coming through the Child Survival program. This is providing clean and safe homes to give families living in poverty the best possible start in life.

This event will be a real challenge for me, both on the day and in preparation during the build up to running in 26.2miles!

I'd love it if you were able to donate what you can, or consider sponsoring a child and making a huge difference to a family. Thank you!




Sponsored Target:

Online Total: £856.00

Offline Total: £0.00

Gift Aid: £141.50

We are a family of 5, Sim, Rebecca, Ezra (13), Leah (11) and Jesse (9) living in the South West of England.

To make a difference to the lives of families in Rwanda.

Wonderful effort Rebecca! This is an awesome challenge. We love Compassion and Lindsay loves Rwanda and longs to go back one day to visit our sponsored child Tabitha. Maybe if we do we can go and check out this mother and baby unit that you're helping to build :) all the best for your final preparations for the run. Xx
