On 14th October I will be taking part in this years Royal Parks Half Marathon, that's running 13.1 miles, for Malki Foundation UK.
I have not run since I did the London Marathon back in 2004 so I need all the support and encouragement I can get!!
Keren Malki – the Malki Foundation empowers families of
children with severe disabilities in Israel to keep the children within
their family home instead of living in institutions.
Project - The Malki Foundation is looking to increase it's unique programme, Therapists on Wheels, where therapists are sent to children's homes who suffer from severe disabilities in the very South of Israel who are unable to get any support.
All the donations to this half marathon will go towards this project, helping lots of children and families.
The run - This stunning central London Half Marathon, takes in some of the capital's world-famous landmarks on closed roads, and four of London's eight Royal Parks - Hyde Park, The Green Park, St James's Park and Kensington Gardens.
I will keep you posted on how my training goes so be sure to check back here.
Malki Foundation uniquely supports thousands of Israeli families who care at home for a child with severe disabilities. We provide them with the means to obtain paramedical therapy sessions (physical, occupational, speech, hydrotherapy, and horse-riding) when Israel’s government-mandated safety net runs out or when, for bureaucratic reasons that no parent can accept, the system says no. For families in Israel’s peripheral communities where therapists are scarce, our supervised therapists travel directly to the child’s home. Founded in 2001 by parents who understand the need, we are passionate, efficient, and effective.
