On 18th May I will be running the Chester Half Marathon in aid of the Henry Van Straubenzee Memorial Fund.  3 years ago I spent 3 months teaching in Bupadhengo Primary school in Uganda.  Classes typically consisted of 70 pupils cramped into small desks with few books and other equipment to aid learning.  The HVSMF aims to lift Ugandan children out of poverty through education and their impact on Bupadhengo was certainly evident.  From the construction of classrooms, boarding houses and teachers' houses to the purchasing of text books, building of water tanks and supply of sports equipment the school has, through the charity's help, become one of the best in the Kamuli region.  

Running a half marathon is certainly no mean feat for me, I think my running career peaked aged 9 and for the last 13 years I've successfully earned myself the reputation as the "unsporty" member of the family, something I'm keen to change.  I'm sure you are all sick of me moaning about my runs in the glorious Scottish winter, so please donate to this extremely worthwhile cause and I promise I'll stop complaining! 

For more information on the HVSMF visit http://www.henryvanstraubenzeemf.org.uk/henry.html they are an incredible charity who are making such a difference to these children's lives and giving them the chance to create a better future for themselves.
