Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.
On Saturday, 19th May at 5AM, I will begin a 100k run in Transylvania. The run will cover over 6500 meters of elevation and require constant movement for between 17 to 30 hours. Although the past 5 months of physical training has been a tough journey, I realise that many young people in Romania have had a life-time of struggles and are in dire need of support. Due to this, I am raising funds for FARA Charity, which directly impacts Romania by running sponsored and supported programs to help vulnerable children & young people.
FARA Charity was founded by Jane Nicholson, from the UK, in 1991 to support the thousands of orphaned children in Romania. FARA funds its projects through its chain of 50+ charity shops across London, as well as through direct donations. Some of FARA's impact projects include the following....
- Family homes for vulnerable children.
- Homes for life for young adults with disabilities.
- Hostels providing life skills training and mentoring.
- Therapy centres for children, free of charge.
- Providing general essentials such as coats, shoes, and books for educational outreach.
FARA Charity is registered in the UK & Romania, plus has been supported by Prince Charles of England for the past 17 years. FARA works with local authorities and has a strong administrative team in place to ensure that all charitable donations go to direct impact and are not wasted on needless overheads.
This will be the toughest physical challenge of my life, but thanks to some amazing support from family, friends, as well as my coaches - I am fully confident in my ability to finish within the cutoff time. Please consider donating any amount for the opportunity to transform the lives of vulnerable and disadvantaged children in Romania.
