Sponsored run 

Swansea Bay 10k on Sunday September 22nd

 

3-walking-boysEdwin of TKW is walking three boys home and that’s what the TKW does week in week out.  You can walk one more child home with them.  Returning one child back to their family means bringing hope to one family, one community and one nation.  It takes one to engage in the process to help one child walk home.

Walking another child home from the streets is a race we must win together.

Over the past year Heddwyn (66), went to the gym at least 2-3 times a week to prepare to take part in Swansea Bay 10k 2013.  Why would hewake up early to be in the gym before 7 am? He has a reason and a purpose. This is a race with a difference.  It is a race for life – walking one more child home to his family is matter of life or death.  You say, ‘I can’t run’, but you can sponsor them as they run to walk a child home.  Since January 2013, TKW team in Nairobi has reunited more than one hundred children with their families, but they were devastated to hear that one boy called George recently died on the streets without finding his way back home. That’s one child too many.  Their cry: “Come run with us for this is a race for life we must win”.

 

Isaiah-MurimiOne race for life for one more child, one family and one community.  Isaiah Murimi has had many challenges since returning back to his family, but he is adjusting and helping his grandmother with shores on their small farm.  He is back in his community where he belongs.  We continue to monitor his restoration process which doesn’t happen overnight.

Go, go Heddwyn, Shiru, Wale, Go!  There is a huge crowd of people cheering you on. Come one!  Come all.  Walking another child home from the streets is a race we must win together. Let’s make this race for life count as we raise hundreds of pounds to walk 100 more children home before Christmas.  Heddwyn is still collecting his sponsorship money. He run for 4km and his knee started hurting so he walked the rest of the way and sprinted at the end.  He has raised nearly £600 while his target was £1,500! One race for life for one more child, one family and one community.
