Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

Okay Steve, you do a bit of running, they said. So how do you fancy running across Britain with us this September? Six marathons in six days - 156 miles, give or take the odd detour - starting at Robert the Bruce's cave in Scotland and finishing at Ruthin Castle in north Wales? We'll take in the Lake District and the highest peaks in England along the way to keep it interesting. We'll provide the meals, and we'll even carry your tent for you - as long as you carry the rest of your gear yourself

Tell me more, I said. Like can I retire if it gets too hard?

Of course you can, they said. As long as you don't mind letting down those schoolgirls in the biggest slum in Nairobi, the ones whose education you'll be running to raise money for. Kids who know the real meaning of words like 'tough' and 'challenge' - and half of whom, statistically, won't see their 25th birthday.

How could I say no? There's more about the charity here: http://www.teach-africa.org/

And I'll add more about Trans Britain and me as the event approaches. In the meantime, please help get my fundraising off to a flying start by donating now.

Thanks.

Steve Platt

Teach Africa

Teach Africa

Charity Registration No. 1112423

Teach Africa was set up to provide secondary education for the brightest children living in the worst slums of Nairobi. It is a scary fact that half of the 13 year old children that leave primary education and go back into the slum will not live past their 25th birthday - by sponsoring them into secondary education we take them out of harms way and invest in the young people that will shape the future of Kenya

It's all wrong to rush such places, but I know you like living fast. And running down hill is a hoot. Have fun training & recalling. Bob Graham next?
