The terrifying epidemic in West Africa could have been stopped in its tracks if the worst affected countries had better health systems. We can't afford repeat of this. Help us get healthcare for every child.
With only one more sleep until the London Marathon we'd like to give a big shout-out to Karl Hoods, one of our inspiring runners. Despite having an incurable rare bone disease, he's not only running 26.2 miles tomorrow for us, he's also completed the Reading Half and is taking on the Berlin and Bournemouth marathons! He really is a super human!
Pictured with his daughter Violet, Karl said "No matter what pain, frustration and annoyances I've been through with my bone disease over the last 10 years, it pales into insignificance when you see what's happening to children across the globe with crises like in Syria, or with Ebola in West Africa." Karl has raised an incredible £3,505 so far. To help him continue to smash his £2,500 target you can donate to his page here; http://ow.ly/M6cy0
Thank you so much Karl; enjoy the run tomorrow. We'll be cheering you on at miles 13, 22 & 25 and providing a massage afterwards! This shout-out is for you!
