Organized by: Jon Wallis

Hello, Next April I’m taking part in the Marathon des Sables, billed as ‘The World’s Toughest Footrace’. The 156 miles, six-day, six-stage Ultramarathon in the +115F (+50C) temperatures of the Sahara Desert will truly test my limits of human endurance. If you know me well, you will know how important running has become to my own personal journey and recovery and I’m asking for your financial support however large or small to help fund my ‘Desert Challenge’. With your help: · I will raise valuable funds for the Charity – Solidarite, which assists poverty stricken families in and around Ouarzazate in Western Morocco · Help educate local populations in health, education and sustainable development · Raise awareness for young people in and around Seattle struggling with mental health issues wanting to chnage · Show the world that at 25 (on race day) that I have matured and can become a role model for my own peer group. Every dollar raised after race entry, will go to this association. I would be very grateful if you support me, in any way, in my efforts. Kind regards, Jonathan Wallis – Ultra-marathon Runner & Adventurer
