Mystery 5k

It'a August, and I'm racing again. As ever, it was a fast and furious 5k, with no time to catch your breath. I managed a half-respectable 20:46, which I am quite pleased about in the circumstances.

But this site is not a Running site. The most important part of running4rwanda is not the 'running' part, but the 'rwanda' part. The only reason for this site, as explained elsewhere, is to raise awareness of fund-raising projects to raise funds for Shyira Trust, in particular for Maternity services, Safe Motherhood and Midwifery training.

I know times are hard - I am out of work myself - but if you feel you would like to make a donation, no matter how big or small, please go to my fund-raising page at www.bmycharity.com/mystery5k and make an online donation. 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 received by Shyira Trust goes to fund the projects in Shyira, Rwanda - there are no overheads, no salaries, no rents.

A little goes a long way in Rwanda, so whether you can afford £1 or £100, you can be sure that is doing some good - a few pennies can save a life.
