Running for Linda and the women of Afghanistan

September 14, 2015

Start 2013

Two years ago we spent a month on the beautiful Valtos peninsula on the Isle of Lewis and took part in the 10km run (walk in our case, with Magnus the Springer Spaniel) in support of the Linda Norgrove Foundation. Today I received the following in an e-mail from Lorna Norgrove

Hello from a very wet and windy Isle of Lewis!

Not going anywhere far today so a good day to send out a reminder about the Linda Norgrove Foundation 10K which is on Saturday, 3rd October this year.

The main event will be held on the Valtos Peninsula on Lewis but, as in the past, it is open to anyone anywhere in the world and we’d love you to take part again.

This year we are raising funds to enable us to give scholarships to young Afghan women to study medicine in Afghanistan.

Entry is £10 and our event t-shirts, £15 including p&p.

You can register on-line here: http://www.lindanorgrovefoundation.org/Online_shop

For any orders to be sent abroad, the deadline for posting will be 21st September.

Please share with your friends or anyone you know who might be interested. It is not just about fundraising but about raising awareness of our work in Afghanistan and the difficulties that Afghan women and children face to gain an education.

Thank you for your support and for taking part in the past.
