About

"For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them." Ephesians 2:10

On a trip to Rio in 2015 with my family I was moved by the very different lives and opportunities my three children have compared to many children there. There are eight million abandoned children under 14 in Brazil and 35% die before the age of 18 due to drugs and crime.* Very sad.

For my small part to help, in May 2018 I'll be going to Complexo da Maré, Rio (a very poor area controlled by drug cartels) with Mission Direct (www.missiondirect.org). I'll be renovating a community centre for the children in the favela to use for sports and education and working on projects preparing teenagers to enter university and caring for the homeless.

Estou voltando para o Brasil em maio, mas desta vez para trabalhar com as crianças carentes do Rio. Eu vou correr uma meia maratona no dia 10 de dezembro para arrecadar fundos para esse projeto. Eu ficaria muito grata com qualquer ajuda que você puder me dar. Obrigada!

Event details

Milton Keynes Winter Half Marathon

I'm taking part in my first half marathon on 10th December 2017. My goal is to raise just one pound for each abandoned child in Brazil. Every penny you generously give will be put to good work, freeing Rio's children from a cycle of poverty and addiction. Please feel free to share this link with anyone you think would like to help. Thank you for supporting my run!
