5km Run Completed!

Thank you to everyone who supported my fundraising event raising money for the Railway Children in the recent period. I ran this 5km race (organised by RunThrough) in around 28 minutes, but it's not the time that makes any difference, it's how the £310 raised makes a difference to the lives of vulnerable children throughout the UK and abroad. This proved more than enough inspiration for me to get round the Olympic Park course. Thanks to all donators once again. Messages will be sent out to each of you in response to your generosity. 




The Challenge

On the 13th October this year, I will be representing Donors and my work company, which has formed a close collaboration with The Railway Children. It was therefore my company who in fact introduced me to the charity and challenged me to raise some money. I am deciding to take part in a 5km run as I have been taking spare evenings to train and I also enjoy fitness in general.


The Work of The Railway Children

The Railway Children charity operates both in the UK and abroad to protect and provide opportunities to children who have fallen upon difficult circumstances in their lives. The charity makes sure that all donations work hard to bring about real change. For greatest impact, the charity’s outreach workers operate at street level to identify these children, before ensuring their continued protection by raising public awareness, offering safe accommodation, as well as working to influence policymakers in Government to move serving the needs of vulnerable children higher up the political agenda.

Thank You

Each one of your kind donations will go a long way towards changing a life. After all, these children are the future.

Thank you,
