Story

After finishing A levels I have decided to embark on my most ambitious (and definitely most foolhardy) running challenge to date: running the 92 mile length of the Teesdale Way. This route stretches the length of the River Tees from Cumbria all the way to the North Sea Coast, and I will be tackling it across 3 days in support of the centre for street children in Saint Louis, Senegal.

This September, I will be travelling out to volunteer at a local care centre which is funded and run by Projects Abroad. The centre provides free basic education and healthcare for children who don’t attend school and are forced to spend their day begging for food and money.

I am working and fundraising separately for my own expenses, so all the money raised will go directly to prolonging, improving and expanding the incredible work of the centre itself through the charity Projects Abroad Foundation.

I would hugely appreciate any donations, however small, to help me make a difference :)
