Running for Maya Children!

Posted · Add Comment

I ran the New Forest Half-Marathon (10th September 2017) to raise donations for Melody School.

Melody School has been set up by Igor Xoyon to provide equality schooling to underprivileged Maya children in Chimaltenango, Guatemala. It is run purely by donations. 

Through sponsorship (around £40 a month) a child is not only able to receive a solid education, but also daily nutritious meals and access to speciality health care that the families would not have otherwise.

As I discovered when visiting it, Melody School is a wonderful place for learning and playing! 

I managed to raise over £1300 for the school thanks to many generous donations – thank you!  I am now thinking about doing the Marathon next year….
