World Land Trust
We save threatened rainforest and wilderness around the world, working with local NGOs to purchase land and create permanent reserve areas. Since its foundation in 1989 World Land Trust has helped to protect over 500,000 acres of the world's wild places against the pressure of expanding human agriculture and population.
Youth Sport Trust
The Youth Sport is a charity which believes every child has a right to be physically active through quality PE and school sport. We believe PE and sport has the power to fulfil young people’s potential, helping them to be healthy and happy, succeed in life and contribute to society. Through 20 years of experience the Youth Sport Trust has developed a unique way of maximising the power of sport to grow young people, schools and communities through the development of qualities such as creativity, aspiration, resilience and empathy. Through the power of sport we aim to ensure: - every child receives the best sporting start in life through a right to physical literacy, - every young person is provided a sporting chance to succeed in life through reduced inequality - every young person will achieve their sporting best in life by developing their creativity, aspirations, resilience and empathy.

Jesse and Norah run 2013 kilometres in 2013!

Norah Davies

My page:

Welcome to our fundraising page!

In the year 2013, we are going to run 2013 kilometres between us. We're aiming to raise a massive £2013 for charity. 

Much of the distance will be covered during training and recreational runs, which we'll measure and record. We'll also be doing at least 2 half marathons: Sheffield in May and the Royal Parks, London, in October. We're adding more 10k races to our calendar and will be attending Saturday parkrun events whenever and wherever we can (see to get involved!). 

We have chosen two charities and donations will be divided equally between them. 

At home:

Following the year the Olympics came to the UK for the third time, we're proud to support the Youth Sport Trust, which encourages and enables young people to get into sport and stay active for life.


The World Land Trust invests in fragile habitats to preserve and enhance biodiversity. With projects spanning four continents, the WLT works directly with local people to educate for sustainability and protect endangered species.

Can you support us and our charities? Bear in mind that you can donate all year round with as small an amount as you like, as many times as you like. Could you commit to donating £3 for every race we do? Or for every 100 kilometres clocked? 

We'll post updates of events and milestones and leave it up to you! 

As always there is no pressure to donate, but a little encouragement goes a long way and your words of support are just as valuable to us. Many of you will know it takes a lot to get out there pounding the streets, especially when it's dark, cold and raining! You can find us on our Facebook page at:!/groups/463459343711960/
