Story

Thanks for visiting my fundraising page.

On the 17th May 2009 I will be taking part in my second desert race, running across the amazing country of Namibia. The course will take me through huge sand dunes, deep canyons, mountain ranges and along the famous Skeleton Coast. 250km over 7 days and completely self-supported.

I am raising money for ChildLink, (see left). The charity helps poor/orphaned children in South India. The money I raise will go directly to help pay for their college fees and help give them a vital education which they are desperately lacking. Please give generously for this extremely worthwhile cause. Thank you!


To dream anything you want to dream, that is the beauty of the human mind. To do anything you want to do, that is the strength of the human will.

Charity Registration No. 1128548

Child-Link helps poor children of all ages in South India, giving them a hope and a future. Without the love, care and education given in the Christian-run Children's Homes we support, many of these fantastic kids would either not survive or be living on the streets. A life-changing difference!
