Ok so i didnt do the half marathon... BUT:
I met a political rapper called Jota Ramos on the beach in Colombia.
He runs Hip Hop workshops for kids in really poor towns.
The Hip Hop workshops educate children, build their confidence, and inspire them to question the system that oppresses them.
I saw one of the workshops myself - it was amazing to see the kids asking questions about why their town had no clean drinking water, and teenage girls speaking out against sexism. It something I hadn't seen before in my months there, especially with the poor educational resources available to them...
This December they're putting on a concert to showcase their work in Cali and I said I'd help raise some money for the flights and accommodation of kids travelling from other towns.
£1 = 3,500 pesos... you do the maths! (Ok don't, but basically £1 can go quite far in Colombia)
