My story

[p]My name is Megan Al-Ghailani, I am a 22 year old from Manchester and on the 5th of June I will begin my [b]40 day run from John O’ Groats to Land’s End.[/b] That's roughly 1000 miles from the tip to the toe of the UK. I'll be running a marathon or more every day with all my necessities on my back. I’ll be camping most nights but will treat myself to the luxury of staying in a hostel occasionally. I am doing this to raise money for a charity called School In A Bag.[/p][p]I’ve set myself this challenge for a few reasons; to challenge myself physically and mentally, to discover my limits, to see more of the UK but, most importantly to raise money for an incredible charity called [url=http://www.schoolinabag.org/]School In A Bag[/url]. [/p][p]Education is something I’m very passionate about, it is a basic human right that we are all entitled to. Unfortunately there are millions of children across the world who are deprived of essential resources to help them learn due to poverty and disasters. According to UNICEF, almost a fifth of the world’s child population will never attend school. The aim of School In A Bag is to provide a SchoolBag filled stationary equipment and resources that will enable poor, orphan, vulnerable and disaster affected children across the world to write, draw, colour, calculate, express themselves and above all learn. A SchoolBag costs just £20 to manufacture, fill and distribute. In our society the contents of a SchoolBag are often taken for granted but can you imagine how different your own childhood would have been without simple learning tools? School In A Bag has helped over 83,000 children across the world but there are still so many more that need our help. I have set myself a goal to raise £5000 and I would love to beat that target. If I can raise that much money, 250 children will benefit from a SchoolBag. An education for these children could be their passport to a life out of hardship and poverty.[/p][p]I'm hoping that I beat this target to raise money for School In A Bag but I hope that I am also able to encourage you all to find your wild side in the great outdoors.
