Jasmin Openshaw selects H.O.P.E for London Marathon Challenge

Jasmin in training for the 2013 London Marathon

Jasmin Openshaw has created a JustGiving page for friends and family to support her London Marathon Challenge and raise funds for Harnessing Opportunities through Play and Education.

In her own words she says…

After a hard winter training in tough conditions, I have decided to conquer my fourth marathon. This will hopefully be my last if I break the 4 hour time!!

This time I have decided to raise money for a charity in Cambodia where I visited when I went travelling last summer. The money will help the education programme for the young people within Siem Reap which without the support their future would be bleak. The money also allows all ages to access some health care which without it they would not be able to afford to go to the local hospital for any treatment.

The charity has made a difference already to this area of Cambodia giving a chance of a future, breaking from the extreme poverty. Something that was hard to take in from visiting first hand.

You can support Jasmin too by donating on her JUSTGIVING page!
