My story

[p]For Manisha UK's annual Everest Challenge, this year I'll be running in the 50km race during the Annapurna 100 event. I'm raising money to open a Learning Resource Centre in Tansen, Nepal, next year which will benefit 1000s of disadvantanged children. [/p][p][b]The Cause[/b][/p][p]Manisha UK has been working in Nepal for years, supporting partner schools and training teachers. Next year, in cooperation with The Steve Sinnott Foundation and Manisha Nepal Palpa, we'll be opening a Learning Resource Centre in Tansen, giving us an all year round presence, enabling us to train more teachers and to reach thousands more children. We'll be providing access to the type of resources which just aren't available in most schools; computers, a well stocked library, modern teaching resources, and of course high-quality and exciting lessons. te[/p][p][b]The Challenge[/b][/p][p]None of this comes cheap, which is why I'm putting myself through by far my biggest challenge to date. The race is 8km (5 miles) longer than a marathon, reaches an alititude of over 3,500 metres where the air is much thinner, and includes around 3,200 metres of uphill climbing. This is not something that years of road racing has prepared me for and I am training harder than ever to be able to complete this event.[/p][p][b]How to help[/b][/p][p]Please, hit the donate button and give whatever you feel able to. Even a little can go a long way in Nepal.[/p][p]Alternatively, you may like to buy some raffle tickets and support Manisha UK while giving yourself a chance to win some fantastic prizes. You can see details and buy your tickets using this [url=https://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/charity-web/charity/finalCharityHomepage.action?charityId=1002565&pageId=950738]link .[/url][/p][p]You could even get involved with the Everest Challenge yourself. Why not join the Manisha UK team in Alcester on 10th November to row 8,848 metres (the height of Everest) and enjoy some great cakes while you're at it! There is also a virtual event for those who can't be there on the day. Details and sign up [url=https://www.entrycentral.com/everest]here[/url]. [/p][p][b]However you support, you'll be making a huge difference to some of the worlds most disadvantaged children. On their behalf, and from everyone at Manisha UK, [i][u]thank you.
