I am taking part in Marathon des Sables 2018 in the Moroccan Sahara Desert, a race named as the “toughest foot race on earth” by the Discovery Channel. It is a self-suffient ultra marathon in the Sahara Desert, covering 250km over 6 timed stages, where runners must carry all food, equipment, clothing etc. throughout (only being supplied with rationed water and a bivouac to sleep under every night).
I have chosen to use this challenge to raise money for a brilliant local charity who change the lives of children in Jersey who are in desperate need for support from having special needs to not being able to afford accommodation or even to just get by in life. This charity needs your help to be able to fulfill its goals to help the children who need it most in their life.
Variety, the Children’s Charity of Jersey have many amazing stories of how they have helped local children but unfortunately there are so many more children still in need. Please take a moment to visit their website to see the fantastic work they do and donate if you wish to help out - even the smallest token will directly help a child get the start they deserve in life.
Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and completely secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving - they'll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they'll send your money directly to the charity. So it's the most efficient way to donate - saving time and cutting costs for the charity.
