Our Brighton marathon runners and Heroes Run team! 
Swimming, running and being a Joshua hero! 

We are thrilled that so many people have been inspired to take part in sporting events over the last two months to help raise money for Joshua!   

Elizabeth Cane swam 100 lengths a week during Lent, raising a fantastic £815 and swimming 600 lengths in total.   Elizabeth was born in Malawi and was inspired to help after news of the flooding in early 2015.  We're very grateful to her for braving the swimming pool in aid of Joshua.  

We had two runners, Seb Ardouin and Lou Quinn taking part in the Brighton marathon in April 2015, raising £500. 

And just last weekend,  a group of Joshua heroes (including George from Rainbow and Batman) took part in the Heroes Run on May 17 in Brighton, raising over £600 between them.  

Our supporters in Malawi were also being energetic last Sunday, putting on their walking boots last weekend to take part in the Walk for Malawi 2015 at Michiru Nature Reserve.  They were raising money for a motorbike to support the work of our field officers, who often have to walk between 4-6 hours a day to support our projects.  Look out for another blog post soon about this event 

If you're inspired to similar sporting achievement, then get in touch!   It's not too early to sign up to one of our events next year!   We will have places again in the Chicken Run, Heroes Run and Brighton Marathon in 2016.  Alternatively, you can find your own event and fundraise for us at the same time.  Sign up now and get training!
