Hi everyone, I'm competing in this years Plymouth Half Marathon to raise £1250 for my trip to Malawi this summer. I'm going with my youth group, and we'll be helping the Medic Malawi charity who do a load of great work in providing much needed medical care and education to the local community. Malawi is one of the poorest nations in the world, and has seriously high infant mortality rates, and a life expectancy rate of 50 years. The country also suffers from a high prevailance of HIV/AIDS victims, with around 68,000 people dying per year. Your money will go towards the cost of the travel in part, but more importantly in helping the charity serve those in Malawi who are in dire need.
