Sponsor Freddy in the Edinburgh Marathon

14 Apr 2009

First-time runner raises money for Hope for Children

Freddy Lecue, Research Associate in Manchester Business School, is running his first marathon in Edinburgh on 31 May. He's aiming for 3 hours 45 minutes but admits he will be happy to cross the finishing line in one piece!

Father-to-be Freddy is running to raise money for the charity Hope for Children, who make even the smallest donation go a long way, for example:

  • From just £3 you can sponsor a child from the slums to receive an education, daily nutrition, medical care but ultimately a chance of better future.
  • Just £5 helps provide screening for 30 children.
  • Even £10 can make a difference to a family for a week.
  • £20 will sponsor a child to include school equipment and meals, or buy a cholera kit which contains basic nursing care equipment, medicines, water purification equipment and oral and intravenous rehydration solutions.

You can sponsor Freddy online at:

Donating through Justgiving is quick, easy and totally secure. It’s also the most efficient way to sponsor him: Hope for Children gets your money faster and, if you’re a UK taxpayer, Justgiving makes sure that 25% in Gift Aid, plus a 3% supplement, is added to your donation.
