Thank you for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.
Throughout May 2018 I will be running three 10K races to raise money for UNICEF The United Nations Children's Fund. These will be on consecutive Sundays starting with the Great Birmingham Run on 6th, followed by the Great Bristol Run on 13th and culminating in the Great Manchester Run on 20th.
For me this is a huge challenge as for the last 31 years my idea of exercise has been pulling corks out of red wine bottles! :) UNICEF is a charity that has long been very special to me since I met a UNICEF volunteer at primary school when I was 6 years old - since then I have done small stints of work for them but have always wanted to do something special!
From a life-saving vaccine to school books in a rural village classroom, the money you donate could protect a child from dangers like disease and abuse, and help them grow up safe and healthy. Every year UNICEF helps millions of children get an education – for example by providing textbooks and classroom kits, or by setting up child-friendly spaces where children can keep learning, even during a conflict or natural disaster.
UNICEF is part of the United Nations but not funded by the UN, only by individual donations, any donation you can give, no matter how large or small can make a difference. Not only will you be supporting a great cause for children both in our own country and around the world - you'll be making sure this dejected, wobbly-bottomed old git gets off his backside and, thanks to your support, does something to make a difference.
Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving - they'll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they'll send your money directly to the charity. So it's the most efficient way to donate - saving time and cutting costs for the charity.
