My Challenge:

A Half-Marathon in Kenya




Sponsored Target:

Online Total: £2,240.00

Offline Total: £350.00

Gift Aid: £525.00

Over the last 2 years I have been on an epic weight loss journey, which changed me so much. I went from a person who couldn’t even walk upstairs without being out of breath to running a half marathon in Rwanda last year. I find myself now back in that same position but this time I am doing a half marathon in Kenya. Why do you ask? I have to say I am asking myself the same question.

Last year I learnt that a little bit of effort can go a long way which meant I got to help families in Rwanda. Now I feel I want to do it all again in Kenya because the rewards are so great to so many.

I am excited to be given the opportunity to raise support for Compassion. I am raising money for solar lights for houses in the projects in Kenya that we are working with. You can understand the HUGE impact having electricity makes! I have also seen first-hand the benefit of sponsoring vulnerable children and I would love you to sponsor one of children I will be visiting. I would be delighted to talk to you about it.

Thanks so much.
