I'm Joshua.  In 13 weeks it is my Bar Mitzvah.

I wanted to raise money for a charity that my Nanna is a patron of - the Dream Factory. 

I am going to run and cycle 130 miles between now and my Bar Mitzvah to help raise money to support Dreams for children who have had difficult challenges in their life.

As I have been preparing for my Bar Mitzvah I have been learning about Tzedakah.  It means “charity” or "justice" and its really important in Judaism.  As I become an Adult I should put 10% of my  effort into helping and giving to others who may be in less fortunate situations.  I hope you will support me on that journey.

I will be giving weekly updates here - as 130 miles is a lot of laps of Mill Hill!

Update - weeks 1 & 2 - not being at school has helped so lots of long jogs and a bike ride as well. 22 miles done so far!  Thanks for all of the generous donations. Joshua 

Update - week 6 - I've made great progress - 66 miles done and coming up to halfway through the weeks.  Nearly 30 miles running and the rest on the bike.  Thanks for all of the donations.  Amazing!!  Joshua

Update - week 12 - I've kept going through the rain and am nearly there.  10 miles to go in my final week.  Thanks to everyone for their support and donations so far!
