Story

So, why am I running another Marathon? Picture this: you are just thirteen years old, orphaned with three younger siblings and an elderly ailing grandparent…and somehow you have to care for them all. Life for you is an unrelenting daily struggle to provide the basic necessities of life. Imagine being given not only the chance of a respite care holiday with other young carers, but also being given the help to build and maintain a key-hole garden outside your home, providing you and your family with fresh vegetables throughout the year. This is the LINK’s Child Headed Households Project in Lesotho – helping youngsters to help themselves Lesotho-Durham Link

    Marathon completed, body recovering, pains and discomforts a memory now and a promise I won't do another. I got a personal best but that wasn't the aim. Thank you to all who have sponsored me in support of child-headed households in Lesotho. The money raised so far will help to provide a week for a child to be a child and not an adult while siblings are also cared for. it is such a great idea and project. If you can encourage anyone to donate more that would be great! Thanks again.

About the fundraiser

I am running a marathon to raise money for child-headed households in Lesotho, Africa. I am 62 so it's not easy. I have run one previous marathon but I was younger then. If I don't think I can do it I will swap to a half-marathon. My chosed race is the Edinburgh Marathon on 27th!
