Gilly’s 1000km Running Fundraiser

Created by:

I set myself a target of running 1000km in a year a few years ago and only reached 350km! Fail. Then last year I got to 750km and finally this year I managed it! I worked out I ran the distance from home in the south east to Edinburgh and back!

Please help me fundraise for people in poverty – no amount is too small!

I’m raising funds for GiveDirectly, a global nonprofit that lets you give money directly to people living in extreme poverty with no strings attached. For people living on a dollar or two per day, receiving cash can be life-changing. It enables families to cover their needs and invest how they choose, instead of aid organizations deciding for them. Hundreds of independent studies show that cash transfers can help drive a range of positive impacts through increased earnings, access to education, health improvements, and much more.
