    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

    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!
