My story

[p]Welcome - this is the fundraising page of Team BTFT, raising money for the Burley Téréli Friendship Trust[/p][p]There are currently 11 of us training hard in preparation for the Ilkley Half Marathon on July 14th. We are running to raise money for the Burley-Téréli Friendship Trust (BTFT - see link below or go to [url=http://www.btft.org.uk/]http://www.btft.org.uk/[/url]), set up by Burley residents with support from ITN / Channel Four news presenter Jon Snow. Burley was twinned with Téréli, a similar sized village in Mali in West Africa, through Jon’s “On the Line” Millennium project. [/p][p]With the support of schools, community organisations and faith groups as well as many individuals from both villages, BTFT has since helped build a school, pharmacy and maternity room in Téréli, as well as funding dune stabilisation to preserve land for crops, a motorcycle ambulance to take the sick and injured 25 miles to the nearest hospital, and the digging of wells in Tereli and the surrounding villages.[/p][p]Recently the charity was shocked to discover there is little cancer care of any sort in Mali, and no palliative care. Team BTFT is therefore hoping to raise over £3,000 towards establishing the first palliative cancer care centre in Mali, West Africa.[/p][p]Your support would be greatly appreciated - many thanks.[/p][p]Chris, Keith, Tom, Colin, Neil, India, Richard, Mary, Kate, David and Laura[/p][p][br][/p][p][br][/p]
