Charity Registration No. 1137580

Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit our JustGiving page.

When our friend Anne said she was running a 10 mile race we thought it would be a great idea to do so too. However, being novice runners we need a bit of an incentive to run!

We will try our very best to run the whole way but we have 2 weeks to train so wish me luck - either way we are determined enough to finish!

The charity that i'm raising money for is the Karen Woo Foundation. A few years ago a British doctor, Karen Woo was killed in Northern Afghanistan delivering aid; it was quite high profile in the news at the time. This was my friend Andy Woo's sister. Since her death he and others have been instrumental in setting up the Karen Woo Foundation which gives grants to health care projects out in Afghanistan- carrying on the passion that Karen had for providing heathcare where it is very limited.

The Just Giving gumph....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.
