Creating Better Futures (CBF)

We fund the education of African children to help give them a better future

Charity Registration No. 1148929


Thanks for taking the time to visit our JustGiving
page. We are so excited to be able to raise funds together as a family so that we can help children in Zimbabwe to go to school.

Our little inspiration is Jasmine. She first visited
Zimbabwe when she was three years old and met many of the orphans that Creating Better Futures helps to go to school. Her own
words at that time were “they have no mummies or daddies and no toys”. Since she met the children, she has occasionally raised money through support from friends, family, church and her school. This year, she chose to run with us.

Michael and I have run together at races like the Reading
Half Marathon and really enjoyed it but it would be too long for our seven year old budding runner. So we decided to take part in three different family fun runs so that Jasmine would participate.

We will run with her during her children’s races then run
the 5k or 10k afterwards, three times this year. We a little help from our friends, and cheering from Jasmine’s little sister, Carissa, we would like to raise£700. This will feed 700 children for 1 month at school in Zimbabwe (£1 feeds 1child for 1 month at school).  

Our races this year are:

The Royal Berkshire 10k and Mini-Mile (for Jasmine) on 21st
of May 2017

The Thames Path Challenge – Henley 10k and Mini Challenge (for
Jasmine) on the 10th of September 2017

Santa Fun Run on the 10th of December 2017 (2k
run for Jasmine, 5k run for us).

Thank you very much for your support, together, we are
Creating Better Futures! J
