I'm not a frequent runner and running long distance is not a common form of training for me. However, I am encouraged that 200 runners are doing this for a good cause and will definitely give my best effort! Through this, I hope to be able to raise awareness for the charities that we are running for and inspire others to make a difference in their own ways.
I can only do so much on my own, together we can do so much more! Please support me as I take on this challenge! Every little contribution counts and the beneficiaries will be ever so grateful. Thank you in advance! :)
