I was inspired to raise money for ATE because my mum, the volunteer bookkeeper for the charity, has told me all about her first hand experiences of the incredible work that the charity undertakes in a hugely poverty stricken area of the world. 
I am aiming to raise £300 through sponsorship to help ATE provide free school lunches for vulnerable children in Ghana. This money, if I am successful, will buy 1500 meals for children who would otherwise not be able to go to school due to hunger.

Event details

Marlborough Downs Challenge - Ultra Marathon

The Marlborough Downs Challenge is a beautiful yet extremely challenging event, mostly off-road along tracks and footpaths. There is plenty of climbing - over 3000 feet for the 33 mile race.
Having struggled over the finish lines of a few road marathons, this is going to be an interesting step up!
