Story

Thank you for visiting our MBL Marathon running 2007 fundraising page.  The race will be held on 27th May, the Bank Holiday weekend, through the historical Edinburgh .

Your support would mean a lot to us and to the Chinese disabled kids and the children in the rural areas- even a little money will go a long way! So please dig deep and sponsor us online.  "Culture for Children" is MBL's mission. All the money raised will go towards several ongoing projects which involve developing and supporting various cultural activities for children from China .

Donating through this site is simple, fast and totally secure. It is also the most efficient way to sponsor us: The Mothers' Bridge of Love will receive your money faster and, if you are a taxpayer, an extra 28% in tax will be added to your gift at no cost to you.  If you have any further queries about the projects and the MBL, please visit the MBL website www.motherbridge.orgSo please sponsor us now!

Many thanks for your support.

P.S The details about our runners are listed below:

James Barrie is currently working in the finance industry with RBS and looking for a fresh challenge to shift some cobwebs from sitting behind a desk all day and to also make a few friends along the way. Apart from running the Edinburgh 10K race two years ago he is an amateur at this. He is keen to build up the distances ran so that he might even attempt full marathon on my own some day. Lucia Siu is a former Hong Kong journalist who now studies in Sociology department at the University of Edinburgh . She is also an amateur runner who has done 10K races on Glasgow's Kingston bridge, Beijing's Tian'anmen Square, and inside Hong Kong 's cross-harbour tunnel. Her resolution for 2007 is to run on the beautiful Edinburgh coastline, trythe fun of a relay team, and get connected with a wider Sino-British community.  Mei Wang,moving from China 6 years ago, being a PhD student in Research Centre for Social Science, she is also a freelance painter in Edinburgh . Although running a long distance for the first time, she sees it as a great opportunity to drag herself out of her comfort zone.  Rebecca Hanlin returned to running as a way to do something active while working in in 2001.  Becky runs 'because she enjoys it' joining friends as they trained for marathons and half marathons in Africa, London and Edinburgh but until recently never competitively run.  Becky has run one 10km in Nairobi and earlier this year completed the Edinburgh Forthside Half Marathon.  Becky is a PhD student and research assistant at the University of Edinburgh . Xiang  Fang is a PhD student in University of Edinburgh . She is a beginner of marathon. She joins this sport to challenge herself and try her best to help people through this charity event. 

 Andrew Ross is working in semiconductor industry with a multinational organisation. With only one previous experience of distance running; Der Toter Man race, Freiburg , he will use this run to try and rediscover his stamina to last the race. He is looking forward to meeting more people, having a laugh along the way.
