Liverpool Santa Dash 2011

Almost there - less than a week to go to the Liverpool Santa Dash.

The numbers have arrived, the suits have been collected, now all that remains is some Santas to fill those suits!

We've had a few dropouts this year, so are struggling to make our full team of 12. If you are thinking of entering, but haven't quite got round to it, now's your chance. And you'll have a number to envy - there are only 9 one-digit numbers, and we've got 7 of them!

If you want one of them, contact me at pete@running4rwanda.com and we can arrange something. I'll even deliver by hand, if possible.

News just in - Fidele has qualified

E-mail just received from Rwanda:
The final results was published recently, I have finished the courses successfully and now I am a qualified midwife. I am very happy for that and I will always keep in my mind people that have led me to this achievement ( the first one is you). Now I am looking for school documents to present to Shyira so that I may start working as a midwife.

Who says you can't make a difference? Thanks to the support of people like you, Shyira now has 2 qualified midwives. We'll continue to support Fidele and Robinah, and safe motherhood projects in Shyira. When the time is right (when we've got enough money), we'll pay for the training of a third midwife.
 
To achieve these, we're running the Liverpool Santa Dash 2011, to raise much needed funds (see below). If you'd like to help us, please visit our fund-raising page and give whatever you can - it all goes to the projects supported. And it all makes a difference!
