Story

I have been fortunate enough to be chosen by Sodexo to Trek the Lares Trail to Machu Picchu in Peru in aid of Springboard UK. I am going to add a twist to the challenge by competing in the Heb 3 Challenge, 3 half marathons in 15 days (Stornoway 26/5, Benbecula 2/6 and Skye 9/6) and additionally I have registered for the Loch Ness Marathon - my first!! All donations will go directly to the charity, I will cover all of my costs for the trip to Peru as well as travel, accommodation and fees for the running events.

The Springboard Charity provides vital support to young people and unemployed or disadvantaged adults by improving their prospects in life and helping them into sustainable employment and prosperous careers in hospitality, leisure or tourism. The aim is to help young people achieve their potential, to combat unemployment and to help relieve poverty by preparing people for work and taking advantage of the employment opportunities afforded by the industry with which we are associated.

I have been asked to raise £3,500, so it would be fantastic if you could help by making a small donation to help me achieve my target. Thanks, Simon
