My story

[p]I am raising money for Advantage Africa by running two marathons two weeks apart - the London Marathon on 22nd April and the Milton Keynes Marathon on 7th May 2018. [b]A generous, anonymous donor has agreed to match any donation you make up to a total of £5,000. This means that whatever you give will be doubled![/b] Your donation will help some of the most marginalised children and adults in Uganda and Kenya to go to school, improve their health and earn an income. It will also ensure they grow in self-reliance, confidence and hope. [/p][p]I have trained over the past few weeks in wind, sleet, ice, snow and torrential rain. I have hurdled errant dogs and toddlers, sunk in muddy puddles and dodged traffic. Oncoming pedestrians have shielded their eyes from the glare of my red face and lycra outfits. The going has been tough, but thinking of the people Advantage Africa supports has kept me putting one fluorescent, soggy foot in front of the other. Please support me in getting through these 52.4 miles and help people affected by disability, albinism and HIV to have better lives. Thank you so much![/p]
