Run the libraries for African Hospital Libraries
I want to help provide library services to health workers in Sierra Leone. I ran a big loop between all the King's College London Libraries!
Raising money for
African Hospital Libraries
Donations accepted until 08-03-2019
UPDATE - mission accomplished! Still time to donate. You can have a look at my route and the pictures I took along the way.
I am a health librarian of long standing and an ungainly runner.
I was really pleased to find out about the work of African Hospital Libraries and am keen to help fund work that is close to my heart.
NHS libraries often use the quote "Knowledge is the enemy of disease" and I believe getting high quality evidence into the hands of health workers in Sierra Leone can help make a real difference.
I work at King's College London and this run is part of our efforts to see how we can support African Hospital Libraries as part of our commitment to service.
I have set myself an ambitious target and hope with your support to get there - it would be great to fund a member of library staff for a year!

Run the King's College London Libraries
My plan is to draw a big loop on the map between all the libraries operated by King's College London and then run between them all (see the image for a rough idea of my route).
I think this should be about 16km in total which is currently further than I have ever run in a single session. I would also be navigating some unfamiliar streets so the chances are high that I will end up running rather further.
I'll take a picture of me looking increasingly haggard at each library I call on and will share them with my sponsors! Who knows I may have some colleagues for company.
