Jason came to Kenya with us in March 2015 on our first trip and was a central figure in both of the epic fundraising cycles we done in 2015 and 2016.
This year Jason will be taking part in what is described as the toughest footrace on earth. The Marathon des Sables (MDS 33rd) sees competitors cover the equivalent of five and a half marathons in five days, in searing temperatures that often top 50 degrees Celsius!
Jason has been training towards this for the last year, and on April the 8th 2018 he will try to complete the 256 km in the 5 day challenge and aims to raise £2,560 for GEF. That’s just £10 for every kilometre he is walking. He will be totally self-sufficient throughout the race as all competitors must carry all their own food, water & equipment required for the duration of the race.
GEF thank Jason for taking on this challenge as he takes each step in the blistering heat of the Sahara Desert for the children that the we support now and in the future. Best of Luck!
