Great North Run - running for Kids in need of Education


This is my 6th 1/2 marathon and 2nd Great North Run. The training this time has been lot better than that on previous runs, so really looking forward to the big race day, 16th September.
I am running for "Kids In Need of Education" which is a charity that supports education for kids in the Indian subcontinent. I have worked with Akansha, their partner in Mumbai and seen first hand the fantastic work they do for underprivileged kids.
With your support, we can not only put some deserving kids through school, but I can also take on the 5k and 10k Olympics champion, Mo Farah, who is running the race (and quaking in his boots right now).

Here is the link to donate.

Please dig deep and donate now. Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. 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.
