Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.
On Jan 25th 2013, I will be running (or plodding!) the Dubai Marathon to raise funds for Ethiopiad, a charity which supports some of the poorest people in Ethiopia by focussing on poverty alleviation, healthcare and education.
Ethiopia is a country very close to my heart because it is my young daughter's birth country and I have seen first hand the daily hardships that many Ethiopians face in their lives. Raising money for Ethiopiad will be part of my continued support to Ethiopia and it will also be great to support the charity set up by Sir Alec Reed, the founder of Reed Recruitment which has been my employer for the past 14 years in the UK, UAE and Qatar.
Having spent months slogging it out on roads and treadmills (to avoid the Qatar summer!) in training for the marathon, I've no doubt that the last few miles of the 26.2 mile course will be tough going but any donations to this cause will make every ache and pain worthwhile!
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 and make sure Gift Aid is reclaimed on every eligible donation by a UK taxpayer. So it’s the most efficient way to donate - I raise more, whilst saving time and cutting costs for the charity.
Every donation will be greatly appreciated.
