Long story short
Please support and help me raise € 5,000 by Friday 31 December 2021 - proceeds will be split equally between five local charities – bBrave, Caritas Malta, Hospice Malta, The Richmond Foundation and RMHC (Malta); my part of the deal is to do my longest run on the shortest day of the year 21 December 2021 – approx. 70 to 80 km in 9 hours 45 minutes
A little bit about the five charities I am raising money for:
bBrave is the first anti-bullying NGO in Malta working on educating more about bullying and its effects. They operate on a voluntary basis and are working to be more involved in assisting individuals suffering from bullying and connecting them with the right support system.
Most people associate Caritas Malta with offering services and helping persons with substance misuse. However, this umbrella organisation also focuses on issues of poverty, loneliness, mental health, depression, separation and Huntington’s amongst other services.
Hospice Malta exists to provide and promote the highest standards of Palliative care for persons with cancer, motor neuron disease, end of life respiratory, cardiac, renal and liver disease. It also aims to help and support their families.
The Richmond Foundation offers all-round support to anyone experiencing mental health problems and the people who live and work with them. Their goal is to ensure that those living with mental health problems live fulfilling lives in a community that accepts and understands them.RMHC (Malta)'s mission is to create, fund and support projects that result in tangible improvements in the health and well-being of children, and by extension their families, by supporting them in overcoming their challenges, enriching their lives and achieving their full potential.
