Believe it or not, i am running the Women's 10K in Glasgow on the 18th May and would appreciate your support!
I have chosen to run for two charities - Footsteps International and The Haven Kilmacolm. Both of these charities have been set up and run by friends and so mean a lot!
I am currently trying to raise sponsorship money for these charities. You can chose to sponsor me via my website www.justgiving.com/cherylthomas and your money will go to Footsteps International. There are 1 million AIDS orphans in Kenya and 50,000 children live on the street. Thousands of children are orphaned each year as a result of accidents and during childbirth, and many more were orphaned during the war In Sierra Leone. Footsteps is providing long-term support to some of these desperately needy children.
If you chose to sponsor me offline (cheque/cash etc), your money will go to The Haven, Kilmacolm. The Haven Kilmacolm is working in my local community providing significant support and accommodation to young men aged 17-35 involved in alcohol and drug misuse in order that they may become free from their addiction. The Haven Kilmacolm is a Christian organisation and has chosen to work with people variously labelled as vulnerable, disadvantaged, excluded and marginalised in order to give them the opportunity to have a very different future.
Thanks in advance for sponsoring me! No worries if you'd rather not! Please email me if you have any questions. Cheryl xxx
