Story

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

Follow my training (sweating and cursing) on http://trashedelbow.blogspot.com.

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 running the Adidas Silverstone Half Marathon on March 14th to support Amnesty International, and raise awareness of Amnesty’s campaign calling for the case of the nine women to be resolved.

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!
