Recently I have been selected to volunteer with Raleigh
International on a Nicaragua expedition for 5 weeks where
I will be taking part in a water, sanitation and higiene project in the region of Matagalpa. My participation in such an exciting trip would not have been posible without the opportunity provided by my company VolkerFitzpatrick, from VolkerWessels UK, who through their partnership and common vision of inspiring young people to drive sustainable development, have made this journey possible.
One of my targets as a volunteer is to raise a minimum of
£800 to help fund this project and contribute to the improvement of the
Matagalpa community and their locals' lives. So on the 8th April I will be running my second obstacle race (out of the three I have challenged myself to do) called Spartan Race which will take place in Kent. I will have the chance to get down and dirty on the mud whilst completing a series of obstacles. Not only that, but some of my work colleagues have shown their solidarity and have teamed up to complete this challenge with me. We will be calling ourselves the "Engineering Lizards", where we will run for the charity Raleigh International.
