Birchwood 10k

This was another opportunity to raise awareness, rather than raise funds. Of course, if you want to help us in our fund-raising efforts, you're more than welcome, but more of that later. From less than 100 runners in my last race, this was a chance to get the running 4 rwanda name in front of up to 1000 runners.

Please take a few minutes to find out a little about the site by reading some of the entries, and looking at FAQs. If you want to join us, or find out a little bit more about us, please follow the Contact me link. If you would like to make a donation, no matter how big or small, there is an appeal open at . Please feel free to make an online donation, or if you would rather send a cheque, please use the 'Contact me' lin

If you would prefer to make a donation by cheque, or would like to know more about Shyira Trust, please use the 'Contact me' link above, and I'll tell you more. Please be assured that every penny
