On March 18th 2018 I am going to run the New York City Half Marathon to raise funds for a fantastic charity called Kick4Life that uses sport to deliver a range of care and support programs for orphans and vulnerable children. Kick4Life’s flagship program is in Lesotho, a small country in southern Africa with the world’s second highest prevalence of HIV (23.6%).
I became a board member of the Charity last year due to my love of football and the fact that these guys are really making a difference to the children's lives and I wanted to be a small part of that.
This is my first attempt at a half marathon and I have been training pretty hard to get myself in shape to complete the 13.1 mile course in under 2 hours.
Please check out the site www.kick4life.org to get an idea of the amazing work being done.
In term of contributions, no amount is too small. $25 will enable Kick4Life to test five vulnerable children for HIV, referring those who test positive to ongoing, life-saving medical treatment and support.
Please support me in reaching my fundraising target of $1,500.
