Facing Africa Noma

I have been lucky enough to take part in the gruelling Marathon Des Sables next year in Morocco. If you haven’t heard of it before it’s a 6 day 150mile race running the equivalent of a marathon each day across the Sahara Dessert in 40c heat while carrying all your food, clothes, cooking equipment & medical supplies for the 6 days! Its dubbed as the toughest footrace on Earth.

 

I will be running for Facing Africa which is an African charity which helps fight ‘Noma’ an acute and ravaging gangrenous infection affecting the face of mainly children under 6 years old. A very worthy charity cause you would agree!

 

The combined pain ‘mental & physical’ I will endure for those 6 days will be immense, but all that is incomparable with what these poor kids are born with not having a choice in the matter!

 

My target set for the charity is to raise £5,000, but I looking to go beyond that if I can! So I look to you and your kind generosity to donate what you can to this great cause!

 

Please spread the word and point anyone you can to this website and encourage them to donate ‘every little helps!!!
