Hi all - as you are aware I have been training for my first Marathon since November 2019 which was first meant to take place in April 2020. When we hit the pandemic, I did not want to quit so my training has kept going and still going strong in readiness for the new proposed date of 10th of Oct 2021!! I can say it is the longest training I have ever done for any event haha! And so I like to make the event more memorable by raising funds for one of the charities that supports different causes around the world. In this instance the focus of the fundraising through SKT Welfare is for Palestine. Here I am putting politics aside and focusing on the people impacted... Having been born in a country (Iran) where we had wars in the past and many homes destroyed and lives lost, this is something I can relate to and understand, and close to my heart. Which follows my request for your support please whatever you can afford to contribute towards this cause and it will be well received. And guess what?! The money will be matched by my employer, thank you Barclays :)
If you are interested in seeing how my training has & is coming along, you can find me on Instagram account "run_n_inspire" or Strava as "Ramesh MA". One love & stay blessed, and keep shining xoxo
