Nigel Straker

Challenge Date:

1st May 2024

My Challenge:

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

For me, this is a challenge that really matters because I’m passionate about the work of Compassion UK in Togo.




Sponsored Target:

Online Total: £160.00

Offline Total: £0.00

Gift Aid: £25.00

I work for Compassion UK, so I know the money we raise will change the lives of children and give them the opportunities they would not normally have. I am also trying to get fit for my son's wedding in June :)

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.

Over the next three months, I will run 100km. In the gym, around the park, through my streets.

I want to raise at least £1 for each kilometre I achieve.

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