Lets provide vulnerable children around the world a safe home!!!
What I will do:
23 September 2012 I will join a 256km footrace starting at the north rim of the Grand Canyon and will end, following six stages, at the summit of the Pink Cliffs of the Grand Staircase, navigating over all different kinds of terrain: hard packed sand, soft sand, dunes, forest trails, rocky roads and even crossing rivers. The whole race is self sufficient: racers have to carry food, medicines, sleeping gear etc for the whole week on their back. Organisation only provides in water, tents and medical help. The average distance we cover every day will be around 40km with one day (and night) being a challenging 80km! Not sure how I will survive that one!!

What you can do:
Please donate whatever you can miss to this amazing charity! I think we can all do the impossible and make our lives worthwhile but not without a secure, loving base in our childhood!!
Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving – they’ll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they’ll send your money directly to the charity and make sure Gift Aid is reclaimed on every eligible donation by a UK taxpayer. So it’s the most efficient way to donate - I raise more, whilst saving time and cutting costs for the charity.
Thank you very very much in advance!!!

Thank you guys for donating!!! The race was extremely long and tough because of all the soft sandy hills but the astonishing scenery made it all totally worthwhile!
