My story

[p]After years of talking about it the time is now! I am running the London Marathon. [/p][p]Last year I was working at Bwindi Community Hospital in rural South-West Uganda. Here the average number of children a woman will have is 6.9, higher in rural areas! (Below is a picture of Dan, our friend with his mother and a few of his family members - he has 21 siblings!) I have chosen to run for The Margaret Pyke Trust, a charity supporting ongoing training and resources in Sexual and Reproductive Health at this hospital.[/p][p]The Margaret Pyke Trust has been at the forefront of contraception and sexual health over the last 50 years. They work in the UK and internationally with a number of interesting projects. I believe that providing sexual health education as well as improving access to appropriate contraception can help elevate families from poverty. I am proud to be running for them.[/p][p]Please support me, as I train through the cold and rainy winter for this great cause![/p][p][br][/p][p](Pictures below: 1.
