Story

I have signed up to take part in my BIGGEST CHALLENGE to date. 4 Marathons In 4 Weeks in 2019.. I want to put it out there I am not a natural runner and will dedicate the next 4 months to prepare my body to get me through this one marathon at a time. It is going to be extremely difficult and will require huge effort but I know I can do it with your help.

In March/April 2019 with the help of the mighty Lord I will run 4 Marathons In 4 Weeks, hoping to raise £20,000 to feed 200 families for a month in Palestine and help plant 4000 olive trees which will help 20 families.

Palestine Marathon: 26.2 miles

Manchester Marathon: 26.2 miles

Boston (UK) Marathon: 26.2 miles

London Marathon: 26.2 miles 

I have pledged to raise funds for poor Palestinian people living in refugee camps in the West Bank. 

During my time in Palestine, I will be joining Penny Appeal to help distribute Food Parcels in these refugee camps and plant Olive Tree's where there needed most with my own HANDS...

Please support and donate however much or little you can by clicking on the link. If I can find 200 people to give just £100 that would be more then enough to help and feed the families I want to. Or you could sponsor me £1 or £2 for every mile that I race (105 miles in total)

There are approximately 820,000 registered refugees living in the West Bank. 250,000 live in 19 refugee camps in West Bank and East Jerusalem facing serious protection issues due to violent Israeli military operations that take place within the camps.

Food packs cost £50 each and supply one family enough food for a month.. Please help me raise £10,000 to feed 200 families.

Olive trees are a very meaningful symbol in Palestine. They symbolise the Palestinian identity and the people’s attachment to their land, their resistance and resilience. They are also extremely economically significant, providing the main source of income for around 80,000 Palestinian families and contributing to approximately 14% of the Palestinian economy. However, over the last forty years, more than a million olive trees have been destroyed by the Israeli occupation.

Please help me raise £10,000 which will support 4,000 seedlings (roughly 20 families).
