Thanks to the legendary Sophie Cross, at the beginning of November, we will be travelling to Nepal and attempting a marathon in the Himalayas!
This is a MASSIVE challenge for me, as I'd never run more than 8 miles at the beginning of August. My amazing employers have given me time off to do this. The students at school have selected three charities this year, and I would like to raise money for them, if you would be kind enough to sponsor me!
The charities are:
1. The Tara Project (Love Nepal) https://lovenepal.org.uk/tara-womens-project/
I will be going to visit the communities where this project has been working, and it is an incredible project but has really suffered since covid, as the sustainable sanitary items that were being given out had to be taken apart to make face marks. Please look at the link as the situation for women in rural Nepal is dire in some places.
2. Winston's wish https://www.winstonswish.org/
This charity supports young people through bereavement
3. Ocean conservancy https://oceanconservancy.org/
A charity advocating and working for cleaner oceans.
The reason I am using gofundme is so that I can split the money between these three charities, but also ensure the money goes directly to the Tara Project in Nepal, as I am in touch with the person running the project.
