Jules Runs 2000 miles!

£615 of £2,000 goal

Raised by 26 people in 14 months
Hi! My name is Jules Greenlees! I turn 60 this year and to mark this occasion I have set myself the challenge of running 2000 miles in 2017. Some (my children!) call me crazy but running has taught me that I'm capable of more than i thought possible and constantly provides new challenges.

I will be aiming to run an average of 40 miles per week, alongside some races, marathons and a few ultra marathons for good measure..! To make it even more special I've got the chance to run in the iconic London Marathon this year! 

I want to use this opportunity to support the work of CHASE Africa to provide education to vulnerable children across Kenya. In particular those affected by FGM in south Kenya, and children orphaned by HIV/AIDS in Western Kenya. On top of this the drought in Kenya is impacting these children the hardest.

So I want to raise £2000 - £1 for every mile I run. All your donations will be going directly to these children to provide them with education and the food and water to sustain them. Every pound will be so greatly appreciated. 


Thank you for your support! Follow me on #julesruns to see how I get on! 

Jules
