Story

Walking 1000 miles

FOCC West Lothian are a charity providing a month of love and care each year to children affected by the Chernobyl nuclear disaster.

Hosting our little angel each year for a month has been the most rewarding experience. To see shy, often unhealthy malnourished and underweight children transform over a month into happier and healthier smiling kids truly makes this worthwhile.

In addition to love, care and lots of food the children also receive dentistry and optical care as well as any other medical treatment we are able to provide.

They return home with vitamins for the whole family and a suitcase full of warm clothes.

I have been lucky enough to be chosen to visit Belarus as a volunteer on behalf of the charity next Spring. We will visit the children and their families, delivering food and essentials to keep them going as well as providing a party for them. We shall also be visiting an orphanage.

I am raising money to cover my expenses for this trip as I do not want the charity to part fund it. In addition, our Belarussian child's family has been lucky enough to be moved to a new apartment but it is just brick walls. This money will also help build a basic bathroom (for the first tine in their lives) in the apartment.

I shall be walking 1000 miles over 5 months! That's an average of 7 miles per day. That's more than a 10k every day!

Race At Your Pace will give me a medal each month for 200 miles after verifying.

Please help me raise this amount. This charity really makes a difference to children's lives and it is believed we increase their life expectancy significantly.

Thank you for your love, kindness and support.
