A big thank you to everyone who sponsored me to run the Uganda Marathon, which was one of the toughest ordeals I’ve ever put myself through, but I’m pleased to say that, despite the odds, and not being particularly fit, I MADE IT !!!
It was incredibly hot that day (my birthday!), not a cloud in the sky, humid, hilly, muddy, and at 1500m altitude….. but running through stunning rural Uganda, getting cheered on by kids, dodging cows, taking my time up the hills, thinking of all the different projects that I was fundraising for and smiling all the way – helped me complete the whole thing (and I didn’t even come last!!)
100% of any money I manage to raise will go towards the projects that I worked on in the days leading up to the Marathon so, as promised, here are a few photos of what I got up to.
THANK YOU so very much to those who have sponsored me, and if anyone else is inspired to do so from these photos, then you still can using this link:
A few pounds goes such a long way in Uganda and is hugely appreciated by the community in Masaka town.
We are no longer using plastic bags at the clinics, but have moved to paper bags
It was such a special day, when all creatures great and small were invited to church for a blessing
What a day for the Paxton Team BBQ – thank you to Louisa and her family for hosting us!
