Story

Thank you for visiting my JustGiving page.

On October 27th, 2019, I participated in the Accra International Marathon in Ghana in aid of MSF. With about six training runs under my belt, and none in the scorching heat of Sub-Saharan Africa, it was a challenge too far for me, as I was pulled aside at the halfway mark when I began to sway. Despite not completing the full distance, I am contented with my Ghanaian half, and raising almost £500 for MSF in the process.

I have decided to keep my JustGiving page active, and anything you could give would be greatly appreciated by myself and, more importantly, Médecins Sans Frontières. At least 89% of all donations go directly toward the delivery of essential medical aid to people who find themselves on the frontline, no matter how difficult it is to get there. I do not have a donation deadline or a monetary target, I simply want to raise as much as I can, for as long as I can.

Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally 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.

Thank you once more. J
