Vincent O.’s fundraising event

Running 2 Marathons in 7 days for Kibera Children

Closed

What's it about?

Thank you for visiting my fundraising page at betterplace.org! Donating at betterplace.org is safe and easy. betterplace.org forwards 100% of all donations. You can even track the use of funds. Not only is betterplace.org a great way to raise support, but it provides transparency as well, showing
how your donation directly affects the project outcome.

My goal is to run two sub-2:30 marathons (one in UK and the other in Canada), 3700 miles apart, within one week. My target is to raise at least 5,000 USD to educate two out of the 26 children from my foundation, who are hoping to join high school next year. To achieve this, I have to run 5,000km and drip 500 litres of sweat over the next 6 months. In this blog, I share the highs and lows of my training and preparations and provide you with insights in the life and times of my 26 aspiring scholars from Africa’s largest slum.

Please dig deep and sponsor me, you can sponsor me for every litre of sweat, every kilometre, every day that I spend in training; whatever suits you! I hoope you also visit my blog to find out more about my training and preparations: The link is here:
