CONGRATULATIONS TEAM SIERRA 260!
Congratulations to the Sierra 260 team for completing the extraordinary challenge of running all the way across Sierra Leone! All 14 friends have made the remarkable achievement of finishing 10 marathons in 10 days, running all the way from the Guinean border to Bureh Beach. To celebrate they have been enjoying a few well-earned beers by the sea.
Part of the motivation for the challenge was to visit little-explored Sierra Leone, one of the poorest countries in the world which has been ravaged by civil war and the Ebola epidemic. Along the way the team visited some of the Street Child projects they were fundraising for, to see first-hand how we are working to protect and educate vulnerable children. You can read more about their experience on their blog: https://www.sierra260.com/blog-1
Through their endeavours the Sierra 260 team has already raised over £70,000 for Street Child and Mind, with further funds from their auction still to come. A huge thank you to Sierra 260 for your awe-inspiring fundraising efforts!
