On 4 September 2022 I will take part in the London Duathlon in Richmond Park doing a 10km run followed by a 44km cycle followed by a 5km run. I signed up in August 2021 wanting to push my boundaries and have been preparing for it for a year now. Running is my weaker discipline of the two and is less enjoyable for me and this year is the first year that I have ever gone out for a solo run! I have grown to appreciate the ability to clear my mind and all it takes is putting on running shoes and getting out of the door.
In the last year, I have averaged 24 and a half hours and 514km of running/cycling a month.
I have decided to use this energy and goal to support WF-AID's Ali Asghar Water Appeal.
All funds collected as part of this campaign will be dedicated to building a desalination water plant in Nzavoni, a remote part in Kenya with little rain fall and easy access to clean water. Currently, nearby water points are too salty and unsafe for drinking. Access to clean drinking water is over 12km away from the centre of the town. Your funds will help to purify the water in nearby access points to serve the community.
I am truly humbled and grateful for your generous contributions.
