Donna Green

Challenge Date:

1st May 2024

My Challenge:

I am running 100km in May and aiming to raise at least £100 for Compassion UK.




Sponsored Target:

Online Total: £165.00

Offline Total: £0.00

Gift Aid: £35.00

I am a 40 year old primary teacher who doesn't normally exercise (let alone run any distance!). I have a husband called Gavin and 3 children called Jacob (aged 13), Emily (aged 11) and Joel (aged 9). We have been sponsoring a lovely 13 year old girl, called Gaga, from Togo since she was 3 years old and we started sponsoring an 11 year old boy, called Gabriel, from Nicaragua during lockdown. We love Compassion and the work that they do with children and young people living in poverty around the world.

I’m running across Togo for Compassion, without leaving the UK.

For me, this is a challenge that really matters because we sponsor a 13 year old girl from Togo and we are passionate about the education and support she will be able to access through this project.

Togo’s educational resources are limited. Many young people have access to few books and no internet. As a result, they can’t progress onto higher education and miss out on the stable income that a graduate job secures.

Compassion Togo is close to completing a youth resource centre in Togo’s capital Lomé. This will enable 500 young people to continue learning and pursue their dreams.

But it needs funding. That’s why I’m taking on Compassion UK’s Togo 100km Virtual Challenge.

Throughout the month of May, I will run 100km around my local area.

I aim to raise at least £100 in total… £1 for each kilometre I achieve, but I would love to raise more if I can.

I’m up for the challenge. Will you help me cross the finishing line?
