My story

[p]I’m Sander van der Meijs and over the past years I ran several marathons. But this time will be different. It will be the London Marathon, and I will run for a charity, GOAL for the Gambia. For that goal, I will do my utmost to run as fast as 2:55, which is faster than I ever ran before. [/p][p]See the children above, for them I am doing this! They live in Gambia and they deserve to be able to go to school and medic treatment when nessesary. The money goes to the building of schools, books, pencils and other things. The project also has it's own nursery school at Bangtangba in a poor rural community.[/p][p]Also the money goes to child sponsorship. They have sponsors for over 300 children of all ages including college education. This is £60 per year - £5 per month and pays for all of the school fees, school uniform, books and a book bag and a pair of school shoes! They have three dedicated key workers who liaise with the schools and the communities to determine who the most needy families and children are and work to secure and manage the sponsorship.[/p][p]Furthermore Goal for the Gambia assists a medical clinic in Somita. There, amongst others, they fund wages for qualified nurses and a midwife and they help provide them with vital medication.[/p][p]And important: all the money goes to the charity. Nothing is waisted on nice trips or cars or whatever. All of it goes into the charity. [/p][p]Look at the page of Goal for the Gambia for more info: http://www.goalforthegambia.co.uk/[/p][p]And donate! Every penny or cent is very much welcome and appreciated![/p]
