Run Aama! Run!
Clotilde is running 2 marathons (double pain, double gain!?!) to raise vital funds for some of the most destitute Nepali children via ChoraChori.

Donations accepted until 29-11-2016
I am a trustee of ChoraChori, UK registered charity, which works for the children of Nepal.
The charity provides funds for post-earthquake reconstruction of schools, for the rescue from India of displaced and trafficked Nepali children and for individual child welfare cases.
Until last October, I had never managed to run more than 30 minutes, my health not being my most fantastic asset. I won't bore you with the details, but just to let you know I've been taking prescribed medications 3 times a day for the last 15 years.
In spring 2015, after the massive earthquake in Nepal, I decided to run both Paris and Edinburgh marathons. This decision to run and fundraise for Nepal, was my only way to cope with this tragedy affecting my second adopted homeland. It is also the opportunity for me to convince myself that I am healthy enough!
Paris AND Edinburgh marathons!
On April 3rd 2016 I ran/walked 42.195 km in Paris.
8 weeks later, I'll run/walk 26.2 miles in Edinburgh on 29th May.
I started my training last September and after several injuries (yes my body is not that fit, but I still love it!) am now able to run/walk a marathon! Paris was a truly amazing life experience: so much excitement and happiness despite the 6 hours 20 minutes of physical effort and the physical pain which goes with it! I knew and proved I am capable of doing a great physical effort for a great cause. Now I need to prove to all (including myself) that I can repeat it 8 weeks later...
So please sponsor me to support a good cause and encourage me in my challenge.
Thanking you in advance for your generosity.
