Chamos - In Aid Of The Children Of Venezuela
The aim of CHAMOS is to improve the living standards of the most deprived children in Venezuela, whether living in urban or rural areas, or in indigenous communities. We do this by providing financial support for them to acquire medical, educational or other essential equipment through highly respected and reputable NGO's in Venezuela. CHAMOS has no political or religious affiliation, and all funds are raised through volunteer work.
Only 0 days to go!

El Farkas run for Chamos

(WOW! The response has been amazing...thank you all so far...I'm now switching to the stretch target of £2,500)

You've seen the posts; you've laughed (and, in some cases, even been traumatised...); but now it's time to put all my indecent running voyeurism into good cause.

On 23rd April 2017 I will be running the London Marathon to support Chamos (http://www.chamos.org.uk/), a London-based charity, that aims at alleviating the struggle of underprivileged children in my native Venezuela.

I am aiming to raise at least £2,500; would you help me get there? There is no such thing as a too large or too small amount –everything helps. And please, do leave your contact details so that I can get in touch to thank you.

I promise to continue to provide regular updates, so follow the hashtag #runChamos on:

(¡WOW! La respuesta ha sido increíble...en vista de eso, voy a subir la ambición a £2.500)

Ok, ya me han visto las fotos; ya se han reído bastante (y hasta algunos de ustedes han quedado traumatizados), pero ahora nos toca a todos a poner mi voyerismo maratonístico a buen uso.

El 23 de Abril voy a correr el maratón de Londres para apoyar y recaudar fondos a favor de Chamos (http://www.chamos.org.uk/), una asociación británica que se dedica a buscar maneras de ayudar a niños y adolescentes de pocos recursos en Venezuela.

Mi meta es por lo menos recaudar £2.500; ¿me ayudan a superar esa meta? No hay donación ni muy grande ni muy pequeña – todo ayuda. Y por favor dejen sus datos de contacto para poder agradecerles personalmente.

Les prometo continuar inundando las redes sociales, y por favor sigan el hashtag #runChamos en:
