Elizabeth Moreland's Fundraiser:

Running for Freedom!

BENEFITING: UNLIKELY HEROES

EVENT DATE: Oct 28, 2013

Elizabeth Moreland

THE STORY:

In October I'm going to take on the challenge of running the 26.2miles of the Dublin marathon to raise money for Unlikely Heroes. In April of this year I had the privilege of working with this organisation in the Philippines and seeing firsthand the wonderful restorative work they do with girls rescued from sex slavery. Unlikley Heroes helps to bring hope and a bright future to these young girls and I would love it if you would partner with me for this great cause.

Unlikely Heroes currently has a safehouse in the Philippines and will be opening another two in the Philippines and Mexico in the near future. The organisation also works tirelessly to bring about awareness about sex trafficking and campaigns for greater measures to tackle this problem across America. For more info check out their website http://unlikelyheroes.com

As Unlikely Heroes is a US charity all the donations are in dollars, so to be helpful I've looked up the exchange rate! 10 pounds/11euro = $15.60.

For the interested competitive sporty people this is my second marathon. In 2011 I managed to sneak under the 4 hour mark with a time of 3.59! This time I'm not quite as fit so I'm aiming for a 4hours 10mins finish but secretly really want to run 3.57! I'll be sure to update everyone post marathon about how it all turned out.

Thank you everyone for your support for a great cause - together we can help battle the problem of sex trafficking.
