I am going to do a triathlon consisting of a 5km run, 500m swim and a 10km bike ride to raise money for the Langalanga Scholarship Fund which is a charity that sends Kenyan children to school who would not have the chance to get an education without the funding. I am specifically raising money for a girl called Ruth Kariuki Wanjiru. Ruth is 17 and her dream is to be a doctor.
I want to help Ruth with her dream because in 2010 my friend Eleanor Clarke was killed in a tragic accident. Her family have chosen to support Ruth in memory of Eleanor to give another bright and ambitious girl a chance to pursue her dreams. Without sponsorship, Ruth could not go to school at all let alone University. I know Eleanor believed that all girls should be able to go to school and this is why I am going to do the triathlon.
