Running not one, not two, but three half marathons in to raise money for Amnesty International and to promote awareness.

Ana María Pizarro, Juanita
Jiménez, Luisa Molina Arguello, Marta María Blandón, Martha Munguía,
Mayra Sirias, Violeta Delgado, Yamileth Mejía and Lorna Norori are
facing legal proceedings for their involvement in the case of a nine
year-old girl, Rosita, who was raped and made pregnant in 2003 and obtained
a legal abortion in Nicaragua.
In October 2007 a complaint
was lodged against the nine, accusing them of concealment of rape and
crimes against the administration of justice.
Amnesty fears the complaint
has been brought because of the women’s human rights work and their
efforts to ensure that women and girls can access safe and effective
sexual and reproductive health services.
I'm also running the Sheffield Half Marathon in April and the Coventry Half Marathon in May, so there's plenty of time to sponsor my effort!
