After already completing a gruelling 100-mile ultra-marathon on September 9th, Danny the founder of Mixmasters is now teaming up with Ish to run the Ibiza Trail marathon Oct 28th.

They are raising funds for the Get Equipped initiative.

Get Equipped is a programme aimed at providing music education to those who wouldn't otherwise have access to it. Driven by fundraising, the initiative takes surplus DJ, Production and Music kits, donating them to educational and community organisations that support children and young adults in the UK and beyond.

With the support of a team of world-class DJs and producers, young people are taught how to play, mix, and make new music using donated equipment.

It has a huge impact on the mental health to all those involved and can really help bring about a feeling of confidence amongst those getting educated via a creative process.

I have participated in two previous trips to deliver the Get Equipped project with the Last Night A DJ Saved My Life Foundation. I reached the summit of Kilimanjaro with the charity back in 2019 and also visited their projects in Tanzania. " I love Get Equipped and its possibilities. I have seen first-hand the impact of the project and what it means to children and young adults."

The proceeds raised from this particular challenge will go towards building new music studios in Sierra Leone, Africa, at WAYout Arts & others in other developing countries. Danny will visit the capital Freetown in 2024 and will also run with 2 runners from Way Out who have become national runners for Sierra Leone.

My comments on the reasons for wanting to support the charity. Like many creatives in the music industry, I faced challenges with mainstream education and its one size fits all approach to learning. I was so grateful that I had access to a set of decks, as this really changed my life and opened up a world of possibilities and exciting and varied career paths. I want to be able to help offer these opportunities to other children and youth who may be struggling like I was.

Jonny Lee, the charity Founder, said, " We're thrilled to announce Danny's challenge. Im in awe of his determination. I have every faith that he'll not only complete his 100-mile run but hit his £10,000 target too. I'm so honoured that he has chosen to push himself with others for the benefit of what we do and the beneficiaries we support."
