Run 365 Challenge Team

My Challenge

Run 365 challenge team for ending hunger

We are fundraising for The Hunger Project. 

Our project is called "run 365 challenge", Ken Hettiarachi and Mark Quinlan are pledging to run an agreed number of kilometres per day for a consecutive 365 days and ask sponsors to sponsor us for £1 a day for 365 days, £365 a year, paid monthly at the rate of £30.41 for 12 months.

Or whatever you can sponsor us for. You may pay a one off amount or a regular monthly amount.

You can track our runs if you join Strava, the running app, its free, and follow Ken Hettiarachi and Mark Quinlan.

Please pledge to sponsor and  make a donation and help us reach our goal of £3650..

Also, if you are inspired, please join us, you won't be the same person who took the challenge when you finish this in a year.

We are starting the day 1 on Saturday 6th June 2020, Ken's 56th Birthday! and will finish on Sunday 6th June 2021!

We will be running in UK and wherever we are even on holiday or work abroad.

What impact will your donation have?

£25 could fund functional adult literacy training for two women so that they can learn to read and write.

£30 could provide one woman with a microfinance loan and financial literacy training so she can start a small business, earn an income and support her family.

£65 could train a local volunteer leader who will educate mothers about the importance of pre-natal care to ensure their babies are delivered safely.

£125 could train one Elected Woman in India to be an effective local council member and ban child marriage in her community.

Every pound counts! Anything you can contribute is greatly appreciated. Thank you!
